The Complete Guide to Secure Healthcare Websites

It was hard to miss a big headline recently about a major ransomware attack that hit computers around the world. For many, this was a reminder that security precautions should be taken seriously when you're building or maintaining a website or app.

If you're in the healthcare space, you're no stranger to security regulations. HIPAA guidelines dictate how your website is created and updated to keep your patient health information safe. But HIPAA isn't a set of instructions for building a secure website – it's a list of guidelines and expectations for businesses to follow. So if you're needing to find a new server provider or update your SSL certificates, you might not know exactly what to do.

We put together a guide for developing secure healthcare websites. Whether you're building a healthcare startup or are moving more of your existing business online, this guide will show you how to keep your PHI (patient health information) secure, and safeguard your business in the event of an audit or attempted attack.

This eBook covers:

  • Server security guidelines to discuss with your provider
  • SSL certificates – what they are and where to get them
  • How to encrypt data during transport and storage
  • The only HIPAA-compliant data disposal method
