Compliance

Rules, rules, rules…like them or not, you have to follow them, or you could get in trouble. Big trouble. Penalties, sanctions, lawsuits…you don’t want to go there. But if compliance hasn’t been on your mind, don’t worry. It’s on our mind.

At SAF, we have expertise in rules, standards, and implementation guidelines for various industry compliances, including:

HIPAA Compliance

In 1996, Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). All types of healthcare providers are subject to HIPAA compliance, including doctors / physicians, medical centers, hospitals, clinics, and dentists.

SAS 70 Compliance

Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute for Certified Public Accounts (AICPA).

SOX Compliance

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was passed in 2002 to prevent large businesses and public companies from deceiving and misleading investors and shareholders. One of the hallmarks of SOX is restriction on the destruction, alteration, and falsification of documents and records.

HIPAA, SAS 70, and SOX compliance regulations apply to networks, servers, desktop computers, laptops, PDAs, and any other devices that perform similar functions.

Compliance considerations include:

  • Transmission
  • Encryption
  • Access
  • Authentication
  • Workstations
  • Clearance
