Learn more about HIPAA and CPRA / CCPA

The CCPA, enacted in 2018 and amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) in 2020, grants California residents significant control over their personal data. Businesses that collect personal information from California residents must comply with CCPA regulations. Failure to do so can result in hefty fines and damage your brand reputation.

How MyData-TRUST Can Help with CCPA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), enacted in 1996, safeguards sensitive medical information known as Protected Health Information (ePHI). HIPAA compliance is crucial for healthcare organizations and businesses that handle ePHI. Non-compliance can lead to significant penalties.

Benefits of HIPAA Compliance

While some organizations view HIPAA compliance as a burden, it actually offers several advantages:

  • Reduced Risk of Penalties: Implementing HIPAA compliance measures helps avoid hefty fines for non-compliance violations.
  • Enhanced Security: HIPAA regulations encourage robust security practices, protecting sensitive patient data from breaches.
  • Improved Patient Trust: Demonstrating HIPAA compliance builds trust with patients by safeguarding their medical information.
