We are already utilizing this to send encrypted messages for sensitive information to
federal government facilities. It works, and complies with federal FISMA regulations,
which works with us and our clients in Washington, D.C.
As we also perform work for a client within the Healthcare sector, I checked with their
information security department, and the verbiage states "reasonable security
measures be taken" under the provisioning of HIPAA. Essentially, you *could* utilize
this program for ePHI file/data transfers, but I would *not* recommend it, due to the
legal implications of ePHI being leaked or intercepted during transmission.
Just my thoughts...
