Teramind for Healthcare Data Security

Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond & Report on Healthcare Data Breaches

HIPAA Compliance, Data Protection, And Healthcare Cybersecurity On A Unified Platform

HIPAA is designed to facilitate the efficient flow of healthcare data and to protect patient’s Protected Health Information (PHI). Law necessitates that CSOs, CIOs, and security officers be ever vigilant in guarding protected health information.

While there are many ways data breaches occur, the most common cause of PHI breaches is people not following proper procedures. Teramind has been helping thousands of organizations protect their PII, PFI, PHI, and other sensitive data.

Teramind healthcare data security system is built on these years of experience and expertise. Teramind’s healthcare cybersecurity system includes:

  • Data loss prevention
  • User activity monitoring
  • Reporting
  • Forensics platform

Teramind handles all of the complex healthcare cybersecurity issues, and privacy concerns faced today.

Effective, End-to-End Healthcare Data Security

Teramind’s automated content discovery and classification identifies PHI. User behavior monitoring detects and protects from malicious and other healthcare security issues.

Finally, built-in forensic investigation capabilities ensure you can track and report on any breaches that may occur.


The healthcare data security system identifies patient records and sensitive data. Structured and unstructured data can be found in areas across organizational data stores. Teramind leverages fingerprinting, optical character recognition, and tagging capabilities.


Teramind applies its activity monitoring and data loss prevention capabilities to defend healthcare data. Sensitive patient and medical data are protected from unauthorized access, sharing, attack, and misuse.


Teramind’s powerful policy and rules engine cast a strong detection net over the entire organization. System owners can identify insider threats and data breach incidents before they occur.


Healthcare security includes real-time notification. Immediate actions proactively defend against data exfiltration, malicious or accidental insider threats, and data breaches. You can use the audit and forensic data to pinpoint the causes of incidents.


Use healthcare information security to provide a burden of proof. Also, use this information to meet record-keeping requirements. Reports include:

  • Detailed incident reports
  • Session recordings
  • Alerts

Exportable reports can be shared with the Privacy Officer, auditors, and other members of the compliance committee.

Teramind Provides Healthcare Data Security and Governance

HIPAA-Specific Security and Privacy Policies

Teramind provides several pre-built policies and rules to protect unauthorized access or sharing of PII, and PHI. Healthcare data security covers the 'Security and Privacy' requirements of HIPAA.

Advanced healthcare security content-based rules can be implemented to detect disallowed content like:

  • ICD-10 codes
  • Drug & disease names
  • Critical information
  • Inside video or images

Additional custom HIPAA policies and rules can be created with Teramind’s healthcare data security Policy and Rule Editor.

Built-In Data Discovery and Classification

Hundreds of built-in rules for PII, PHI, PFI, insurance and many other sensitive data types. Custom categories can be created using regular expression and natural language search.

Combine optical character recognition and digital fingerprinting to discover health and personal information in structured/unstructured data. With Teramind’s healthcare security, data can even be discovered in images.

Meet Compliance Review and Security Standards with User Profiles and Activity Monitoring

Establish individual and group security profiles. Use security profiles to identify employees or classes of employees with patient records.

Granular user activity monitoring of more than 12 system objects like:

  • Files
  • Networks
  • Websites
  • Apps
  • Emails
  • Keystrokes
  • Printed documents

Instant alerts and audit trails allow providers to meet the compliance and healthcare cybersecurity standard review requirements.

Administrative and Technical Safeguards

Intelligent rules within the healthcare data security system automatically detect when users are exposed. The rules also tell system owners when employees shared unprotected health or personal data.

Immediately get notified about harmful user activity. You can even lock out users before they perform any malicious or fraudulent act.

Breach Reporting, Burden of Proof and Workforce Training

Session recordings, session logs, risk analysis reports, immutable logs, and audit trails can serve as valuable sources for compliance reporting. They can also be used as burden of proof for any breach audits.

The insight derived can be used to train employees about how to handle PII, PHI, and EHR data. These important trainings help employees better understand and meet compliance with HIPAA guidelines.
