Vanta HIPAA Training

  • Updated

Vanta offers HIPAA training developed by our in-house team of security, privacy, and compliance experts to help ensure your employees learn about essential and required HIPAA principles in a way that nurtures a positive and strong culture of security and privacy.

Vanta’s HIPAA training is housed directly within the Vanta platform—which means your employees can view and complete the videos without leaving the Vanta onboarding page. To assign the training to employees, you can create a group or leverage an existing one for the relevant employees and assign the training to that group. As with all modules within Vanta's security and privacy training library, you have access to the videos that are relevant to the frameworks you currently use with Vanta.
