Cynet 360 Vs HIPAA Compliance


HIPAA provides requirements and guidelines for maintaining the security and privacy of individually identifiable health information, and the Cynet 360 platform collects activity data and provides protection against threats to the implementing organization.

Some of the specifications in HIPAA are policy/process requirements are entirely the implementing organization’s responsibility, while others apply to a technology platform that handles or interacts with any personally identifiable information. The features available in the Cynet 360 Platform can be utilized by the implementing organization to partially or fully satisfy the specifications in the requirement.

Cynet 360 platform provides HIPAA compliance in the following groups:

  1. Risk Management

    Vulnerability assessment and ranking, as well as proactive risk scoring for hosts, user accounts, executed files and network domains/sockets.

  2. Protection from Malicious Software

    Multilayered endpoint protection: signature-based Antivirus + Next-Gen Antivirus that includes AI-based static analysis, behavioral analysis, memory monitoring and comprehensive threat intelligence feeds.

  3. Log-in Monitoring

    Monitoring of all attempted logins.

  4. Integrity

    Enforcement of File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) policy.

  5. Response and Reporting

    Array of attack detection technologies: EDR, Network Analytics, User Behavior Analytics (UBA) and Deception.

  6. Audit Controls

    Collection of all activity logs across the environment: host, account logins, data access, Windows events and firewall/proxy logs.

  7. Notification

    Supplemental support via Cynet 360, detailed threat prevention/detection and alert reporting.

§ 164.312 (b)
Implement hardware, software, and/or procedural mechanisms that record and examine activity in information systems that contain or use electronic protected health information.
  1. The Cynet 360 agent continuously gathers event data (process execution, user account logins, network traffic and user defined Windows events) for the host and transfers it to Cynet server.Additionally, the Cynet server ingests firewall/proxy logs.
  2. The Cynet 360 agent continuously gathers The collected data is available for review via the Cynet UI. Which provides capabilities to execute custom queries to examine collected activities.
164.312 (c)(1)
Policies and procedures to safeguard PHI unauthorized alteration. Cynet 360 supports enforcement of File Integrity Monitoring policies based on user definitions.
§ 164.316 (b)(2)(i, ii)
  1. Retain the documentation required by paragraph (b)(1) of this section for 6 years from the date of its creation or the date when it last was in effect, whichever is later.
  2. Make documentation available to those persons responsible for implementing the procedures to which the documentation pertains.
  1. Cynet 360 retains authentication, file access, network, security and incident breach notification logs for an unlimited period of time.
  2. Cynet makes documentation of these logs available to any individuals per the organization’s choice.
§ 164.404 (b)
  1. (1) A covered entity shall, following the discovery of a breach of unsecured protected health information, notify each individual whose unsecured protected health information has been, or is reasonably believed by the covered entity to have been, accessed, acquired, used, or disclosed as a result of such breach.
  2. (2) Breaches treated as discovered. For purposes of paragraph (a)(1) of this section, §§ 164.406(a), and 164.408(a), a breach shall be treated as discovered by a covered entity as of the first day on which such breach is known to the covered entity, or, by exercising reasonable diligence would have been known to the covered entity. A covered entity shall be deemed to have knowledge of a breach if such breach is known, or by exercising reasonable diligence would have been known, to any person, other than the person committing the breach, who is a workforce member or agent of the covered entity (determined in accordance with the federal common law of agency).
Cynet 360 supplements this requirement with the following capabilities:
  1. Cynet 360 has the capability to detect known and new attacks.
  2. Cynet 360 UI provides capabilities to identify, investigate, and track incidents.
