Why encrypt emails?

Email encryption and HIPAA:

What you need to know. The importance of email encryption

MBS is often asked why we encrypt certain emails. We use an email encryption platform to ensure sensitive information is transmitted safely.

Strong layers of encryption convert data into complex codes to prevent unauthorized access to data in transit or at rest. Access to this information requires the authorized recipient to login to a secure web portal for informational retrieval.

Our System Keeps Private Information Private.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law enacted to improve the nation’s health care system. It defines requirements for the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI).

The Privacy Rule standards address the use and disclosure of PHI by entities subject to the rule. These individuals and organizations include billing agencies.

The Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule. This subset is all individually identifiable health information a covered entity creates, receives, maintains or transmits in electronic form.
