Healthcare Sector Patient Privacy Collaboration between FairWarning and ArcSight

Fair Warning : 01 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Major IT Security vendors collaborate on interoperable solution for providing the health service industry with protection against patient privacy breaches and IT security threats
FairWarning has announced joint certification between FairWarning's leading patient privacy breach detection software and the SIEM Platform of ArcSight, a global provider of security and compliance management solutions.


FairWarning has achieved CEF certification for the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform from ArcSight, and ArcSight is the first and only Production-Certified FairWarning Ready-for-Healthcare partner. This newly created level of certification provides strategic interoperability proven in production customer environments. Today's announced mutual certification means that FairWarning and ArcSight customers can immediately benefit from the solution.

By making FairWarning's application privacy monitoring capabilities interoperable with user and network activity monitoring capabilities of the ArcSight SIEM platform, customers will be able to seamlessly monitor their entire healthcare enterprise. In addition, customers using the solutions will be able to rapidly perform end-to-end incident investigations involving patients, users and infrastructure devices to dramatically reduce the time and effort required to complete such examinations.

Using FairWarning, ArcSight customers may now perform privacy monitoring on more than 100 healthcare applications. Support for new applications can be added in a matter of hours. Using the ArcSight SIEM platform, FairWarning customers can gain visibility into user, system, and application activity across clinical applications and other infrastructure to proactively detect and mitigate security and privacy breaches. ArcSight offers pre-packaged 360-degree monitoring to track all actions of users flagged by FairWarning, across all their identities, and enable detection of suspicious activity such as shared credentials or direct privileged access to PHI through database queries.

"FairWarning and ArcSight are at the core of our plan to reach the next level of compliance," says Christopher Paidhrin, Security Compliance Officer for Southwest Washington Medical Centre in Vancouver, WA. "Now, audits and reports will be automatically generated, and easily accessible. FairWarning addresses clinical application compliance, while ArcSight addresses the infrastructure security piece. Together, they add tremendous value to our organization."

With ARRA HITECH privacy provisions, increased HIPAA enforcement, and state privacy laws including California SB 541 and AB 211, many healthcare organizations are re-evaluating their privacy and security needs. Using solutions from FairWarning and ArcSight allows providers to take advantage of solutions that dovetail into their complex information technology environment.

"The switch to an electronic format will certainly increase efficiency, but also makes it easier for highly personal medical information to be breached," said Reed Henry, Senior Vice President of Marketing at ArcSight. "The interoperable solution from ArcSight and FairWarning enables healthcare institutions to make the transition while retaining visibility into security and privacy threats to medical data."

FairWarning offers out-of-the-box privacy auditing solutions which include support for every major healthcare application family
