Addressable: Implement a mechanism to encrypt and decrypt electronic protected health information |
A lot of HIPAA breaches happen because ePHI is not properly encrypted and becomes easy to compromise, steal or even accidentally gets accessed from computers that are decommissioned without wiping. This Action1 query verifies that full disk encryption is used on the managed endpoints so in case the hardware device is stolen, the data on disk becomes unusable to the thief.
