The HIPAA Policy on Security Incident Procedures Template is designed to provide standardized security procedures and incident response processes that meet the HIPAA Security Rules regulations. Our template will help ensure your organization is compliant while protecting your data, systems, and other physical devices from unauthorized access or disclosure. Additionally, it provides a framework to identify, respond to and mitigate any suspected or known security incidents.

Our template covers all necessary steps of responding to a security incident such as determining who handles the incident response process, understanding when to notify authorities, creating an effective notification plan and following up with required documentation. It elaborates on how all pertinent parties associated with the incident must coordinate instructions at each stage of the investigation in a timely manner. With our template, healthcare providers can rest assured knowing the foundation for a successful response plan is in place if a security incident occurs.
