HIPAA Security Resources
The Computer Security Resource Center (CSRC) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a series of documents of general interest to the computer security community. Many of the documents are guidelines on various forms of electronic security like cell phones, PDAs, Bluetooth, servers, and external devices for telework and remote access.
Other NIST resources include:
Building an Information Technology Security Awareness and Training Program (SP800-50 go to their website for a zipped version)
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services(CMS) also has some security and risk assessment documents which may be of assistance.
Other HIPAA Security resources are available in our PLC Store.
