Custom Internet Services LLC Confirmed as HIPAA Compliant by Compliancy Group

Winfield, KS-based Custom Internet Services LLC, an Information Technology solution provider serving small- and medium-sized businesses and organizations, has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program by Compliancy Group.

Custom Internet Services provides a range of IT services including cybersecurity, data protection, data backup, networking, web systems, and training. Many of the services provided to healthcare organizations and their business associates involves access to systems that contain protected health information. Custom Internet Services is therefore classed as a business associate and is required to comply with certain provisions of the HIPAA Rules.

To ensure the company was fully compliant with the HIPAA Rules, Custom Internet Services partnered with Compliancy Group. Compliancy Group has developed a comprehensive implementation program that simplifies compliance with the provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules and those of the HITECH Act.

Custom Internet Services completed the implementation process and tracked progress toward compliance using Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA compliance tracking solution, The Guard.  After completing that process and identifying and mitigating potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI, Compliancy Group’s HIPAA subject matter experts verified Custom Internet Services’ good faith effort to achieve HIPAA compliance and awarded the company its HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

The HIPAA Seal of Compliance demonstrates a company’s commitment to data security and compliance with the HIPAA Rules and helps companies differentiate their services.

“Maintaining the security of our clients’ data is of the highest importance. Our team has worked very diligently to achieve this validation. We’re pleased to offer this enhanced capability to our clients,” said Steve Strom, Owner of Custom Internet Services.
