SOC2 certification is not HIPAA compliance - Ep 131

12/1/2017
More
Recently, we have dealt with our clients struggling with vendors in the vetting process. Particularly, tech vendors of any sort. Many vendors have written off the HIPAA compliance requirements by simply saying “We are SOC2 compliant so you don’t have to worry about anything”.
