This section of HIPAA reads as "Implement hardware, software, and/or procedural mechanisms that record and examine activity in information systems that contain or use electronic protected health information."

Tracking user activity and all attempts to access ePHI is critical in understanding the structure of attacks and investigation of breaches of ePHI. Action1 helps to address this section of HIPAA by verifying that all needed types of access events are enabled for auditing on the managed endpoints and flags endpoints that violate this requirement.
