HIPAA & ISO27001

We've spoken previously regarding ISO27001. I'm working with a software developer supplying into the aged care market. While in Australia, some providers ask if the developer is HIPAA compliant, a US standard/set of rules. If you are aware of HIPAA, how do you think about it in in line with or against ISO27001?

Basically, HIPPA is not so strong on information security management requirements as ISO 27001, and ISO 27001 is not so strong on privacy controls required by HIPAA.

By implementing ISO 27001 alone, you will achieve only partial compliance with HIPAA; however, you might consider the combination of ISO 27001 and ISO 27799, as described in this article:

Thanks Rhand.  There is plenty of overlap but appears that if planned well it shouldn't lead to too much duplication of effort to potentially be both ISO accredited and HIPAA compliant.

However, could you also provide some insight as to how SOC2 compliance verlaps with the audit processes of 27001/27799 and HIPAA?

Unfortunately, we do not have such a comprehensive document, but you can have information about SOC 2 and ISO 27001 overlap in this article:

With the information in the articles included in the previous answer, you will be able to have this general overview.
