Addressable: Verify encryption of electronic Protected Health Information in transit


This section of HIPAA reads as "Implement a mechanism to encrypt electronic protected health information whenever deemed appropriate."

Network sniffing is commonly used to attackers to steal ePHI in transit or gain access to systems that store ePHI. For example, if someone logs in to medical records server from a workstation using a wireless connection that is not encrypted, someone can extract user credentials from network packets and then use it to maliciously access patient records and other confidential information. This Action1 query verifies that all network connections, including wireless and VPN, are properly secured with the up-to-date encryption algorithms and authentication that prevents network sniffing and potential breaches of ePHI transmitted over the network.
