    KeyCrest Services and Capabilities
    Regulatory Compliance

    HIPAA Audits
    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-191), also known as HIPAA, is not a "technology law", but it has significant implications for the way in which organizations manage health care information because it creates stringent protection requirements for patient data and holds violators of the Act accountable for mishaps. KeyCrest can audit your medical systems and determine whether you are in violation of the law, as well as recommend measures to achieve compliance.

    PDD-63 and regulatory compliance
    Presidential Decision Directive 63 prescribes ways in which the nation's critical infrastructure will be protected. All government agencies and many other organizations must follow PDD-63 and related guidance. KeyCrest consultants have significant experience with security actions needed to maintain regulatory compliance. We can help you determine what regulations apply to your environment and recommend compliance measures.

    Privacy Act compliance
    There are dozens of public laws that regulate how information must be protected and safeguarded. These include the most well-know Privacy Act of 1974, which is a "code of fair information practices" that regulates the collection, maintenance, use, and dissemination of personal information by federal government agencies. There are related regulations that apply to non-federal agencies and to commercial organizations. KeyCrest can help you assess whether any aspect of your infrastructure threatens compliance with any of this legislation, and can take steps to ensure that your information is managed with individual privacy in mind.

    Accessibility (Section 508) compliance
    Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1998 requires that Federal agencies' electronic and information technology be accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 establishes requirements for electronic and information technology developed, maintained, procured, or used by the government. KeyCrest consultants have done numerous 508 assessments, and can help you revise your technology and systems to comply with the law.
