Arup Nanda Talks Security & Compliance

May 5, 2004

With the April 21, 2005 HIPAA Security Rule deadline fast approaching, pharmaceutical, health insurance and clearing house companies, along with financial institutions and any other company involved in the transmission of identifiable patient health information in any media form need to be focused on what security measures they have in place to ensure the security, and ultimately the privacy, of that information.

The HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Legislation of 1996 was formed to ensure the prevention of health care fraud, simplification of the administrative process, in terms of transactions and code sets, and protecting the privacy of patient records and information.

Arup Nanda, a noted Oracle security expert, co-authored the Rampant TechPress book, Oracle Privacy and Security Auditing,  along with well-known Oracle expert, Don Burleson. 

Arup discusses the issue of security in relation to HIPAA with Robert Westervelt of,

"My biggest concern is that database security is not being handled at the database level, but at the application level. That can cause a lot of holes. Companies are currently focusing on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations, and credit card rules. Nearly all companies are working to create an audit trail to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley and they are working to ensure that their financial information is secure. With HIPPA, pharmaceutical and insurance companies are working to ensure that customer data is encrypted and out of the reach of attackers.",289202,sid13_gci961977,00.html
