In general,  what are the requirements of the HIPAA Security Standards?

In general, your practice must:
  1. Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic protected health information it creates, transmits, receives or maintains.

  2. Protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to that information, such as hackers, viruses, or loss of files.

  3. Employ the appropriate safeguards, such as employee guidelines and training, firewalls, anti-virus software, back-ups, updated individual passwords, audit trails, and data encryption when transmitting protected health information.
