Understanding Data Encryption and FIPS 140-2 Within the Healthcare Environment
Published on September 26, 2019
FIPS 140-2 is a trusted method for ensuring that your selected encryption method is effective enough to protect your network devices along with patient and user data. Knowing that medical devices and device software are compliant with FIPS 140-2 is reassurance that health records and other user data are properly encrypted to help mitigate the risk of cyberattacks.
This paper helps you understand the importance of encryption in the healthcare environment and the IoMT (Internet of Medical Things); and explains the role of FIPS 140-2 in ensuring that your selected encryption method is effectively protecting your devices and your customers’ patient and user data. Although this paper discusses the importance of encryption in the healthcare field specifically, the importance of FIPS 140-2 applies to all industries that require encryption to protect sensitive data.
