VERIFIED BUSINESS ASSOCIATEWipeDrive (formerly WhiteCanyon Software) achieved a verification of their internal policies and procedures by The Compliancy Group that earned them the HIPAA Seal of Compliance. This verification reviewed handling of PHI internally and externally to ensure all data handling meets HIPAA regulations. This extensive review provides our healthcare clients with assurance that WhiteCanyon (now WipeDrive) is a credible business associate for wiping IT assets.
VERIFICATION PROCESSThe Compliancy Group is the healthcare industry’s third party HIPAA review organization. Since there is no formal HIPAA certification from the federal government healthcare professionals around the country rely on 3rd party organizations to review Business Associates for HIPAA compliance. The review process required an in-depth analysis of system access, password maintenance, data storage and data handling policies. Employees were trained on these policies and they were enacted throughout the WipeDrive organization. This in-depth review took months to complete and required the buy in of all stakeholders.
HIPAA REGULATIONSHIPAA Regulations require that all business associates of covered entities also be compliant. HIPAA Privacy Rules state that such business associates must safeguard PHI from misuse. This includes access to data, data in transit, notification of data breach and breach resolution. Business associates can cause significant issues for covered entities and they must be thoroughly vetted.
WIPEDRIVE HELPS YOU COMPLYBy using a 3rd party verified Business Associate, healthcare clients can be confident that the performance of WipeDrive will help their organization be HIPAA compliant. The WipeDrive software removes all data, including any PHI from the IT asset with an industry standard wiping protocol. After the wipe, WipeDrive verifies the media to ensure that the wipe is successful. WipeDrive will then provide an auditable Wipe Report as confirmation that all PHI and other data on the drive is securely erased. The organization can then present these reports as proof of HIPAA compliance in their IT Policy. WipeDrive takes data security very seriously. That is why we have taken the additional step to have our policies and procedures verified organization-wide by a third-party, and certified that we are and continue to remain compliant with all HIPAA Regulations.
