1 FairWarning Capabilities Mapping to HIPAA The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act's (HIPAA) Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules protect the privacy and security of health information and provide individuals with certain rights to their protected health information. The three HIPAA rules are • The Privacy Rule, which sets national standards for when protected health information (PHI) may be used and disclosed by covered entities and their business associates, • The Security Rule, which specifies safeguards that covered entities and their business associates must implement to prot ect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information , • The Breach Notification Rule, which requires covered entities to notify affected individuals; U.S. Department of Health & Hum an Services (HHS); and, in some cases, the media of a breach of unsecured PHI. Business associates are required to notify the covered entity of breaches at or by the business associate.
