Security Information & Event Management (SIEM)

Fortified’s 24/7 monitoring facilitates HIPAA Security Rule compliance by utilizing custom-built reporting modules, macros, and taxonomies.

With proposed monitoring in conjunction with other Fortified security services, such as vulnerability management, you can be assured that your organization meets the intent of HIPAA security provisions, and that you can demonstrate compliance for patient information safety as a normal part of your operational security.

Fortified not only provides compliance monitoring but also monitors all relevant security and system audit events – including those created by IT Staff. This complete separation of duty will aid response to complicated issues that otherwise may have gone unnoticed. HIPAA specifically mentions event logs as an important vehicle to meet compliance and requires covered entities to collect, analyze, preserve, alert and report on system and application security event logs generated by all relevant systems. Fortified log management/correlation solutions, used in conjunction with internal procedures and policies, provides your organization with the capability to have a strong, yet cost effective compliance strategy, and to easily demonstrate adherence to external auditors.

Managing log data alone would be an extremely labor intensive activity that not only puts an immense amount of stress on your existing resources, but has the ability to detract from daily operations. Failure to implement proper logging processes can translate to many thousands of dollars in liability for non-compliance, remediation and other related expenses. Information systems can be tough to properly monitor due to their dynamic nature. It is imperative that persons knowledgeable with security incidents across many operating systems assist in event monitoring. Fortified will provide these solutions for you.
