Upon approval of the equipment, the SDA technician was extremely professional, calling prior to arrival, arriving on time, completing the installation in a timely manner, and answered all questions. Within two days, I was asked about our new computer system and was assured that SDA would answer any questions or address any concerns until we were 100% comfortable with our new computer.

HIPAA Information
Medical Offices are strongly encouraged by the federal government to properly manage patient security risks. How prepared is your organization?
    Southern Data offers HIPAA Security Risk Assessments (HRSA) that show your company and staff how to:
  • • Ensure your patients confidentiality
  • • Protect data by identifying all assets and where it resides
  • • Prioritize the necessary cybersecurity measures to mitigate risk and achieve HIPAA compliance
  • • Demonstrate, document and maintain compliance for your organization

The Report
HRSAs are performed by a highly certified Network Engineer who prepares a qualitative report that includes where and why your company or office may/may not be in violation of HIPAA regulations.
Having this report on-hand allows for quick review if and when a HIPAA Audit occurs within your office.

Technology 2017
The price of solid state drives has come down greatly over the last year. A solid state drive will give your old worn out system a new life. If your system is five years old or so, a solid state drive will make a massive difference in your system.
    Improvements over standard hard drives are:
  • • Less power draw, averages 2 – 3 watts, resulting in 30+ minute battery boost
  • • Around 10-13 seconds average bootup time
  • • There are no moving parts and as such no sound
  • • No vibration as there are no moving parts
  • • Lower power draw and no moving parts so little heat is produced
  • • Mean time between failure rate of 2.0 million hours
  • • File copy / write speed: Generally above 200 MB/s and up to 550 MB/s for cutting edge drives
  • • Full Disk Encryption (FDE) Supported on some models
  • • Up to 30% faster than standard hard drives
  • • An SSD is safe from any effects of magnetism
