The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, mandates that all covered entities fulfill certain requirements for data backup, data storage, and data recovery. These requirements are listed in the Security section of the Administrative Simplification Act. Global Data Vault’s storage is a highly secure online data backup and data recovery system that allows you to fulfill the HIPAA requirements for secure data storage and disaster recovery while realizing significant cost savings.
