Cyber Threats to Small Businesses in 2021

When large tech companies talk about cybersecurity, compliance and risk management, it usually sounds like something for the big players.

One of these ways, unfortunately, is by making small businesses just as vulnerably to cyber attacks as their larger counterparts. 

According to IBM, 2021 saw the highest average costs for breaches. On average, data breaches costs businesses in the United States up to $4.24M. While that doesn’t mean that your breach could cost you that much, it’s important to know that, no matter the size of your business, you need to take cybersecurity seriously.

What is CMMC 2.0 and, Why Is the Defense Department Changing Requirements?

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework is a relatively new, yet still partially implemented, set of cybersecurity regulations targeting DoD agencies and contractors.

What is Meaningful Use and How Does it Relate To HIPAA and HITECH?

Healthcare data and privacy have been a priority for lawmakers and IT professionals for decades. Maintaining privacy related to health information, and giving ownership and agency over disclosure to patients, drives current regulations around Personal Health Information (PHI). The most important of these regulations, HIPAA, has undergone various changes and revisions over time to meet modern security demands. One of these changes, the implementation of HITECH and digital record keeping, includes several additional rules on managing digital health records, including the concept of “meaningful use.”

Here, we will discuss what it means when HITECH legal language encourages the meaningful use of health records and how that can impact compliance and security.

What is HITECH and, How Does it Relate to HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA is a detailed and comprehensive set of regulations governing IT systems and data handling in the healthcare industry.
