SAN MATEO, Calif., May 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumiata, which applies artificial intelligence to multipoint aggregated medical data to enhance predictive analytics in healthcare, announces completion of a third party audit attesting to its achievement of the demanding requirements of the SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA data security standards.
The meticulous third-party examinations and assessments that led to compliance with the rigorous series of data security standards was administered by the professional IT compliance and audit staff at 360 Advanced, a national HITRUST CSF, Qualified Security Assessor, and Certified Public Accountant firm based in St. Petersburg, FL.
The SOC 2 Type 2, developed by the AICPA, is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls. HIPAA is designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients' medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers.
“Achieving SOC 2 and HIPAA compliance affords Lumiata the opportunity to audit, crosscheck and improve our data and security practices,” said Nicolas Tilmans, Sr. Director of Engineering at Lumiata. “This is a critical step to building and scaling partnerships with our customers across the healthcare industry.”
