The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal agency that enforces HIPAA. HHS does not provide or endorse HIPAA certifications. When HHS conducts an audit, it looks at whether an organization can demonstrate that it has made a good faith effort toward achieving HIPAA compliance.


Compliancy Group’s Seal of Compliance is the recognized third-party HIPAA compliance verification standard for healthcare professionals, vendors, and IT professionals across the healthcare industry.


The Seal of Compliance is issued by Compliancy Group upon users’ completion of their HIPAA compliance program using The Guard. The Seal of Compliance verifies and validates that users of The Guard have made a every effort to satisfy the HIPAA regulations, and have the documentation to illustrate it.


Since you have successfully completed our implementation process, and your Compliance Coach has verified and validated your compliance program, you have been granted access to our Seal of Compliance. The Seal of Compliance is issued in digital format to be displayed on your website and email signature, in addition to a physical decal which can be displayed in your office.


The Seal of Compliance serves as a great differentiator. The presence of the Seal of Compliance on your website proves to visitors that you care about safeguarding their information. They can be confident that when they choose your practice or firm, that you will do all that is necessary to protect their sensitive information.

The Audit Response Program is Compliancy Group’s proprietary methodology for tracking and responding to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigations and HIPAA audits. The Audit Response Program supports users in the event of a HIPAA investigation, providing documentation and reports pulled directly from their organization’s unique compliance program in The Guard.
