HIPAA Risk assessment is often regarded as the first step towards HIPAA compliance. Risk analysis is a required implementation specification under the Security Management Process standard of the Administrative Safeguards portion of the HIPAA Security Rule as per Section 164.308(a)(1). Covered entities will benefit from an effective Risk Analysis and Risk Management program beyond just being HIPAA compliant. Compliance with HIPAA is not optional… it is mandatory, to avoid penalties.
