In such rapidly modernized times, technology has diversified itself through digital means by providing appropriate measures to tackle data breach situations.

Why is data protection important?
The basic definition of data protection is to secure any information within the system that acts as a carrier for transmitting them across different points. It protects sensitive and critical data from being exposed to the outer world. As the amount of data created and stored continues to grow at unprecedented rates, the objective of data protection grows. Information security has always been critical as the estimated number of computing devices grows each year and computing becomes more complicated.
What role does HIPAA compliance play while protecting sensitive information?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a legislative act that mandated the adoption of federal standards to prevent sensitive healthcare data from being revealed without the knowledge or approval of the patient. It safeguards medical information and applies to healthcare practitioners, data processors, pharmacies, and other businesses that come into contact with it. The HIPAA legislation attempted to regulate data protection procedures throughout the healthcare industry when it was enacted. Because the healthcare business is dynamic, this crucial regulation has been changed several times to ensure that it remains updated and capable of addressing difficulties that have developed due to changing technology.
