HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive PHI health care data. PHI is any demographic health care-related information that can be used to identify a patient. If vendors who service healthcare clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must comply with applicable HIPAA requirements.
Further aligning with Talend’s commitment to compliance in cloud security, the company also announced certification under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission to better support transatlantic commerce. This program imposes strict data protection requirements on certified businesses when exchanging personal data between organizations on both sides of the Atlantic.
