HIPAA Compliance Auditing with EventLog Analyzer
HIPAA mandates the security of a patient's health information from any unauthorized use or access. HIPAA requires that all health care organizations dealing with sensitive patient data must establish a security management process to protect patients' confidential data from attempted unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or interference.
Therefore, IT security administrators must collect and analyze log data across the network and extract meaningful information on data access in the form of reports.
EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, helps IT security admins meet HIPAA requirements by monitoring and auditing access to critical data. This solution identifies and tracks suspicious insider activity as well. It provides out-of-the-box reports with exhaustive information on data access, user activity, user logon and logoff activity, and more. This solution also generates real-time email or SMS alerts that help instantly mitigate any compliance violations.

HIPAA requirements detailed in Sec 164.308 (a) (1) (ii) (D) require monitoring of access to confidential patient health information.
EventLog Analyzer provides detailed, premade reports to:
- Track access to the given object (file or folder) that has confidential information.
- Identify the type of operation performed on the object (read, write, delete, or modify).
- Single out the user who accessed or performed operations on the object.
- Know whether the operation or access was successful.
This solution also gives detailed information on where the access or operation was attempted from.
Logon and Logoff Monitoring
Successful User Logons and Logoffs: HIPAA requirements 164.308 (a) (5) state that user access to the system be recorded and monitored for possible abuse. This requirement, apart from detecting the security breaches, allows IT security administrators to document access to confidential medical details by legitimate users.
EventLog Analyzer's Successful User Logons and Logoffs report includes detailed information such as the user name, date and time of the logon and logoff events, reason for the logon failure, and more.
Logon Failure: EventLog Analyzer's intuitive graphical reports provide detailed information on the logon failures happening across the network. These reports include details such as:
- Reason for logon failure (logon failures due to bad password, account lockout, or password expiry).
- User(s) who attempted to log on.
- Device(s) from where the logon attempt occurred.
- Date and time of occurrence.
These details give in-depth visibility into the network access. EventLog Analyzer also allows IT security admins to view the original log message and identify the exact log entry that caused network intrusions.
Unsuccessful User Logons: EventLog Analyzer provides detailed reports on unsuccessful user logon attempts across the network, which help proactively mitigate the breach attempts at the intrusion stage.
Terminal Service Sessions: EventLog Analyzer provides predefined reports that have exhaustive information regarding the connection, reconnection, and disconnection of terminal server sessions, which allows tracking of the device session status.
System Logs: To ensure complete network security, it is essential for IT security administrators to identify the local system processes such as the system startup, shutdown, or changes to the system time or audit log. EventLog Analyzer provides preconfigured reports for all of the above mentioned system events.
Audit Logs Cleared: HIPAA requirement 164.308 (a) (3) calls for procedures to review records of information system activity such as audit logs regularly.
EventLog Analyzer enables security administrators to meet this requirement by providing audit logs access reports. Apart from this, the solution helps securely archive audit log data. At any point of time, the audit log data can be loaded back to the database, and forensic analysis can be conducted to identify the root cause of theattempt, if any.
Successful or Unsuccessful User Account Validation: EventLog Analyzer identifies successful and unsuccessful user account logon events, which are generated when a domain user account is authenticated on a domain controller. It also provides detailed information on the user account validation.
