Ensuring that your Senior Living community is as safe as possible for your residents and employees is paramount to your business.
This goes for cybersecurity as much as it does for physical security. Implementing security solutions is vitally important to ensure your organization keeps sensitive data out of the hands of malicious actors, and guarantees the safety of your staff and residents. It’s also critical that your organization maintains HIPAA compliance and makes sure that personal health information (PHI) does not leak from your community.
Senior Living communities have recently seen a significant increase in data breaches and ransomware attacks, so having a proactive strategy along with policies and procedures related to cybersecurity is more important than ever. These policies and procedures will also be vital in ensuring your community is securing the proper cybersecurity insurance policy at the best rate. Lastly, ensuring you take the necessary steps in performing the CMS required annual HIPAA security assessment is equally important in ensuring your community’s compliance.
