Written by Orlee Berlove, Director of Marketing at OnPage

American law has the well-known doctrine that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Simply put, a person who is unaware of the law may not escape liability. For HIPAA, this means that even if a hospital is unaware of HIPAA’s requirements on a subject, the entity can still be liable for violating HIPAA statutes.

At the same time, lacking knowledge of HIPAA can cause practitioners as much hassle as ignorance could. Not knowing what HIPAA allows can lead to bizarre and painful demands as well of employees. For all involved, HIPAA ignorance is not bliss.

Adnan Raja January 10, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

If you’re a science fiction fan like me, the term “artificial intelligence” recalls entities like HAL-9000, Skynet, the Cylons, and the fact that these creations have a bad habit of rising up against their creators and trying to kill us all.

While artificial intelligence (A.I.) has struggled to gain footholds in other niches, it is finding its place in the world of cloud computing, a sort of revolution within the revolution that could rapidly change the face of businesses using cloud computing solutions over the next few years.

In the 21st century – the Age of Information – most processes, products, and methods today are built to make technology intuitive for users. Modern hardware and software require minimal user intervention. However, somehow, even after 14 years, WordPress has resisted certain intuitive, user-friendly changes. WordPress migrations, in particular, have faced this criticism.

How to make your WordPress site HIPAA-Compliant

Adnan Raja December 8, 2017 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

To deliver HIPAA compliance within WordPress, the first step is to understand the basics of HIPAA-compliant IT and hosting. Relative to the specific deployment, perform a risk analysis and then build a HIPAA-compliant WordPress site with five basic concerns in mind.

HIPAA compliance in IT – the basics

Why is this form of compliance needed? Organizations in healthcare and their service providers want to avoid federal fines but also want to generally prevent compromise. Healthcare data breaches increased 40% from 2015 to 2016, so now it is even more critical to pay attention to defenses for your protected health information (PHI) – particularly the electronic protected health information (ePHI) safeguarded within data environments.

In 2016, for the first time in history, Americans spent more money online on Black Friday than they did in retail, avoiding the trampling crowds searching packed department stores for the best deals in retail.

A full 108.5 million customers did their shopping online, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation: nearly 10 million more than the 99.1 million that braved the weather and crowds to do their shopping in person.

How to Prevent a Cyber Attack

Adnan Raja November 29, 2017 by under Managed Server Hosting 0 Comments

One of my favorite movies of the 1980s is “Wargames,” in which a teenage hacker, played by Matthew Broderick, accidentally activates a nuclear defense computer program named ‘Joshua.’ The program contemplates launching the US’ arsenal of nuclear weapons in a preemptive strike against the Soviet Union. With the computer seizing the missile codes, the military officers at NORAD attempt to simply turn the system off to prevent the incursion. When they reboot, Joshua starts right back up again.

Cyber attacks today are just like Joshua – you can’t simply turn off the system and make the threat disappear. You can implement preventative measures into your business’s infrastructure to vastly lower the chance of a cyber attack against your business. Let’s take a deeper dive into those practices after exploring the modern world of the cyber attack.

When Congress enacted the Final Omnibus Rule in 2013, many healthcare organizations, doctors and administrators became concerned about how they and their entities would maintain HIPAA compliance.

Accepting credit card payments can greatly boost your business’s bottom line, but it comes with an immense responsibility. Anyone paying attention to the news knows how ubiquitous credit card breaches and hacks have become, with Target, Home Depot, and now even Equifax — a premier U.S. credit bureau — falling victim to data breaches that compromise precious cardholder and personal data.

My business is starting to grow, and my bank says I need PCI compliance – Where do I start?

Adnan Raja October 3, 2017 by under PCI Hosting 0 Comments

PCI compliance is the leading industry standard for secure handling of payment card data, and is generally required for businesses accepting credit, debit or other payment cards, as well as the companies that supply them with services, software and hardware to process those payments.

The Payment Cards Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC) was formed in 2006 by five leading credit card companies, and sets security standards which provide the assurance which underpins payment processing arrangements and partnerships. For this reason, it is very common for banks to require businesses to demonstrate PCI compliance when they are handling sensitive customer payment data.
