Irvine, CA – Identillect Technologies Corp. (TSX-V:ID | OTCQB: IDTLF | Frankfurt: 8ID) (the “Company” or “Identillect”), a leading provider of email security today announced that Hudson Valley Fertility, an infertility and IVF center, will implement Identillect’s email encryption and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance tool, Delivery Trust™, at the center’s facility in Fishkill, NY.
The decision marks a stance by Hudson Valley Fertility to not just meet but exceed HIPAA privacy and security regulations. In response to the extensive data breaches seen in the medical field, Hudson Valley Fertility has taken a proactive stance to maximize patient security.
“Identillect is seeing a growing expansion of the use of encryption services in all facets of the medical community; the sector of reproduction and fertility is experiencing breaches as are other segments of the medical community. Identillect is proud to be the selected provider of Hudson Valley Fertility and we are confident Delivery Trust email encryption will provide doctors and patients peace of mind when transmitting and receiving sensitive patient data by email,” said Identillect CEO Todd Sexton.
Delivery Trust™, which protects information in transit and at rest from cyber security threats, has been adopted by a growing number of healthcare providers throughout North America. Putting email security measures in place is a central requirement of HIPAA compliance.
The challenges faced by medical CIO’s to do more to protect patient data came into focus in recent months with widely-reported stories of cyber-attacks carried out against healthcare facilities. According to a study just released by McAfee, the healthcare industry is now the leading target for cyber-attacks. Healthcare companies accounted for 26 percent of all data breaches between April and June of this year.
“The increase in attacks on healthcare in recent months is a very sober reminder to all health organizations which store personal health information (PHI) need to continually increase security measures in order to protect their network and their patients from hackers,” said Sexton.
