If you are in the health care industry, you have heard how serious the impact of HIPAA violations can be on your business. Up until 2018 businesses only had to prove they were attempting to complaint. In fact, in the past, as long as nothing bad happened to your data, HIPAA regulations weren’t taken too seriously. Today, though, HIPAA rules are becoming firmer, and in the upcoming years, violation penalties will become more severe. Not only can you get fined, but you could also get up to 10 years of jail time for the most severe infractions!
