New Integration Provides Organizations Complete Solution for Detecting and Managing Incidents; Business Associates Will Effectively Manage Regulatory and Contractual Obligations
PORTLAND, Ore. — April 16, 2015 — Security incidents have become an everyday occurrence in all industries that use and hold sensitive customer and patient information. RADAR®, the purpose-built data incident response management software from ID Experts® brings simplicity and efficiency to the management of privacy and security incidents. Today, ID Experts is releasing the new RADAR API that allows third-party applications—such as Security and Access Log Monitoring, Incident Detection and Ticketing—to create incidents in RADAR for regulatory risk assessment and tracking. Once an incident is created, organizations can use RADAR's patented Breach Guidance EngineTM to determine if the incident is a breach according to the complex maze of federal and state laws, provide guidance on notifications to individuals and regulatory agencies, and prove compliance.
RADAR Offers Specialized Business Associate Workflow for Managing Incidents
Healthcare Business Associates (BAs) are facing increased regulatory and contractual obligations when assessing and responding to security and privacy incidents. RADAR’s new workflow is designed for BAs—including health plans that serve as the third party administrator (TPA) and covered entities that are self-insured—to simplify the complexity of these obligations. This new purpose-built workflow allows health plans and business associates to efficiently manage these complex obligations using a secure and scalable platform to reduce risk and demonstrate compliance to regulators and their business clients.
“The RADAR team is continuously innovating and collaborating with our users to meet the compliance challenges facing our customers,” said Mahmood Sher-Jan executive vice president and general manager, RADAR product unit at ID Experts. “Privacy and security incidents and the increased obligations associated with them require innovative new software platform specifically developed for this purpose.”
