It is a free 10-20 minute questionnaire that provides an in-depth review of your organization’s HIPAA compliance.

Our tool was developed and tested by our leading cyber security analysts and HIPAA compliance experts to ensure accurate and thorough results. If you are looking for more information on what a HIPAA security risk assessment is, then read here.

How the free HIPAA SRA tool works 

With aNetwork’s free tool, business leaders or IT staff simply fill out a questionnaire that reviews all aspects of your organization’s network and compares the data against HIPAA’s compliance framework 

Specifically, the objective of the HIPAA risk assessment is to reveal weaknesses in the way you create, store, and handle protected health information (PHI) within your organization. 

HIPAA requires every healthcare organization or covered entity that deals with PHI to complete a HIPAA risk assessment. 

Our free SRA tool covers your current policies, controlsprocedures, and more. In short, our HIPAA security risk assessment tool tests your organization’s ability to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI.

Specifically, our security risk assessment tool allows you to achieve the following:

  • Identify where and how PHI is stored, received, maintained or transmitted
  • Identify and document potential threats and vulnerabilities to PHI
  • Evaluate and identify current security measures used to safeguard PHI
  • Assess and evaluate security policies and procedures used to safeguard PHI
  • Determine the likelihood of threats and security incidents
  • Assess the likelihood and impact of a breach of PHI
  • Define and assign risk levels for vulnerability and impact combinations
  • Document assessment and take necessary action

As well as many more deliverables designed to protect PHI.

Afterward, the SRA tool automatically compiles and presents a score of your network’s security posture and HIPAA compliance strength based on your answers.  

Furthermore, it automatically provides insights into which weaknesses in your network pose the most critical threats. Specifically, our tool triages your network’s vulnerabilities from high risk to low risk.  

As a result, business leaders feel less overwhelmed and have a clear picture of which vulnerabilities should be resolved first. 

Finally, our HIPAA compliance experts go through your security risk assessment with you to address compliance gaps and resolve vulnerabilities.
