Failing to Obtain EPCS Certification
Improper Authentication Protocols
Poor Audit Trails
Inadequate Employee Training
Inadequate Testing and Monitoring
Testing and monitoring are essential components of any EPCS system. Covered entities companies must conduct thorough testing of their systems to ensure they meet requirements and can operate correctly in real-world scenarios. Testing should include all aspects of the EPCS workflow, including identity verification, authentication, audit trails, and reporting. After the system is deployed, companies should perform ongoing monitoring to detect and correct any issues that may arise. Monitoring includes the review of audit trails and system logs to identify any suspicious behavior or errors in the system.
