Patient Data Theft on the Rise
As the world accelerates toward a fully digital economy, information and data have become high-value targets for hackers and thieves resulting in ever larger and costlier data breaches, and with new regulations making organizations legally responsible for the confidentiality of sensitive data, the data stored in databases now represents a business risk that must be carefully managed.
Nearly all IT executives recognize that their information systems process and store sensitive and regulated data, but the mixture of on premise and cloud based IT infrastructure along with the use of diverse applications and multiple database platforms make it difficult to ensure all your sensitive data is protected everywhere it is stored or processed.
The need to protect data is particularly acute in healthcare due to the regulations that mandate the protection electronic health information (e-PHI). E-PHI is broadly defined as information that can reasonably define an individual and is related to their past, present or future health conditions or their payments for treatments.These regulations add significant financial penalties to the reputational costs associated with healthcare data breaches.
Enabling the Safe Sharing of Healthcare Information
This white paper describes how the SMPC approach can be utilized to enable secure data sharing use cases such as community health information sharing. The technical feasibility and operationalization of such a solution is a reality today and can offer benefits to healthcare providers, payers and governing bodies operating in a distributed data environment. It describes an example of the joint value of distinct data sets providing greater value to the sharing parties.
Data-Centric Security for Healthcare
HIPAA and HITECH technical safeguards specify the use of encryption safeguards for PHI, but many healthcare organizations have fallen into a false sense of security by implementing “checkbox” encryption methods that do nothing to prevent data theft.
Baffle Advanced Data Protection helps secure your company’s data both on-premise and in the cloud without modifying applications. Data remains encrypted in memory, in use and at- rest without breaking business processes and applications.
Gartner 2019 Cool Vendors in Privacy Preservation in Analytics
Baffle has been named by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor” in the field of Privacy Preservation in Analytics. For organizations looking to comply with the latest data privacy regulations, such as GDPR and CCPA, Baffle offers a strong solution to bridge the gap between data confidentiality and data usability.
How Baffle Helps
PROTECT DATA FROM INSIDER THREAT
Baffle’s Advanced Data Protection turns the database tier into an AES encrypted brick with no key present. This prevents privileged users from accessing sensitive data records while still allowing them to perform operational tasks.
SIMPLIFY ENCRYPTION IMPLEMENTATIONS
Implementing encryption can be costly and difficult. Baffle is implemented via a no code data abstraction layer that simplifies application-level encryption while saving on development time and costs.
COMPLY WITH PRIVACY REGULATIONS
Drive regulatory compliance faster using Baffle’s “no code” solution. Baffle uses industry standard AES encryption to protect data at the field level ensuring that HIPAA, GDPR and HITRUST requirements can be met.
