Helping you with your HIPAA compliance needs
Minneapolis – July 10, 2018
Whether you’re the office manager at a family dental office, a physician in your own practice or an attorney working with healthcare clients, HIPAA impacts everything you do.
That’s why CrashPlan® is excited to announce we can offer you even more peace of mind knowing that your critical patient and client personal information is securely protected.
How we can help you meet your HIPAA compliance needs
First, obtain a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) through our Customer Champions.
After you obtain a BAA with Code42, the only requirement is to leave the encryption setting – which is enabled by default – active (see Device Backup Advanced Settings). With this setting enabled and the agreement signed, you can be assured that your data is protected and you can check one more thing off of your HIPAA compliance list.
Why the news matters to you
Businesses are worried about things like the cost of doing business, privacy of employee data, and management of data for regulatory compliance. This is where Code42’s ability to focus exclusively on the needs of businesses will benefit our CrashPlan customers.
“Until now, Code42 only offered the ability to execute a BAA to our larger enterprise customers – CrashPlan customers didn’t have this option,” said Steve Buege, SVP and general manager of CrashPlan at Code42. “But over the last couple of years, Code42 has invested more in the compliance and security aspects of our core platform, and in our internal company processes to make it easier for all of our customers from enterprise to small business to manage their data in a HIPAA-compliant manner.”
