Email Encryption Compliance

Firms today face a minefield of regulations that must be thoughtfully understood and carefully implemented. Email Cipher has been designed as a tool to help you address many of those challenges within your organization while still allowing easy, reliable, and safe communication.

HIPAA / HITECH Act

Email Cipher can help ensure compliance with the HIPAA standards that affect email. These standards can be found in the Technical Safeguards group of the Security Rule:

Transmission Security standard Aimed at preventing unauthorized access to and modification of ePHI being transmitted over a network, this standard has two implementation specifications: Encryption and Integrity Controls. These two are easily met through Email Cipher - end-to-end military-grade encryption. Not only are unauthorized users prevented from modifying the contents of your email, they also have no way of viewing it.

Audit Controls - standard - Email Cipher Basic and Pro already come with a message auditing feature that will allow you to track message events. Pro subscribers may even view other relevant usage information such as a list of recipients, subjects, and the total size (text body and attachments) of each email message.

SOX

To guide businesses in achieving email compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the SEC and PCAOB are advising CEOs and CIOs to adopt an IT-focused control framework. In turn, most companies have turned to COBIT, the most widely-accepted control framework when it comes to business risks associated with IT issues.
