HIPAA Compliance - Security Audit Checklist and risk analysis guidelines?

Posted on 2010-01-04
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We are looking to do our own HIPAA security audit and risk analysis from a technical standpoint, making sure that the IT infrastructure is secure and that there are policies in place to address everything regarding computer/data security and HIPAA.  Is there a good place to get a checklist that  third party IT auditing firms might use if they are hired to conduct a HIPAA analysis on a network?

    A checklist is a fairly standard document, the questions auditors may ask would change from person to person or organization to organization.
