News : Startel Achieves Compliance in HIPAA Data Security
Startel Corporation, a provider of unified business communications for contact centers, announced it has successfully completed its third annual assessment of data security compliance required under the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This validation reinforces Startel’s commitment to protecting consumer data and privacy.
Startel engaged Coalfire, a global provider in cyber risk management and compliance services to perform the third-party compliance assessment. Coalfire evaluated the controls Startel had in place to satisfy requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule, including the additional IT security-related requirements identified under HITECH and the Omnibus Rule. Coalfire determined that the design and effectiveness of Startel’s control environment is sufficient to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI) data.
"Achieving HIPAA compliance for the third consecutive year is a true indication of Startel’s commitment to data security and privacy," said Andrew Hicks, healthcare practice director at Coalfire. "We recognize Startel for their solid security program and dedication to compliance."
