The HIPAA Security Rule requires healthcare organizations to use appropriate safeguards to ensure that electronic protected health information (ePHI) remains secure while the HITECH Act, which expands the HIPAA encryption compliance requirement set, requires the timely disclosure of data breaches.
Thales eSecurity provides solutions to help implement technical safeguards for ePHI through:
- Encryption of data wherever it resides;
- Encryption and key management;
- Data access controls.
