    The HP WIPS HIPAA report enables Healthcare organizations to evaluate conformance to HIPAA. assess risk and take action to address exposures in the wireless network:
  • 52. The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
    CIPA is designed to protect minors from accessing inappropriate adult content while in schools or libraries
    School districts must certify conformance when applying for e-rate discounts
    Schools commonly use a web content filter to ensure that inappropriate Internet web sites cannot be viewed by students when they are on school property
    Unmonitored wireless connections will completely bypass this protection, putting the school at risk of being in violation of CIPA.
    HP Networking WIPS Enables Schools to Easily and Effectively Comply with CIPA
