FairWarning Inc., a vendor of privacy breach detection software for health care organizations, has released the second of three best-practice guidance documents based on its implementation experience with more than 300 hospitals and 1,200 clients.

The St. Petersburg, Fla.-based company in May issued its first guidance document, "Patient Privacy Definition Guide." It detailed data requirements and definitions necessary to conduct minimum and advanced levels of privacy auditing.

The second guide now available is the "Patient Privacy in Enterprise Security Data Definition Guide." It covers the correlation between privacy breach detection and enterprise security technologies. Understanding the correlation enables security investigators to identify and analyze suspicious application-level activity with other infrastructure activity, which assists in conducting a comprehensive analysis of an incident, according to the vendor. The third guide will essentially be a training manual that is much more prescriptive than the first two.

To receive the guides, send an e-mail to guide@fairwarningaudit.com.
