Thousands of US organizations must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. The Security Rule is a key part of HIPAA -- federal legislation that was passed into law in August 1996. The overall purpose of the act is to enable better access to health insurance, reduce fraud and abuse, and lower the overall cost of health care in the United States.

This article presents a detailed overview of the Security Rule and key factors you should consider when preparing to comply with the rule.
