Keeping your personal data safe doesn’t have to be difficult- as long as you keep the sensitive information encrypted and under your control. That’s why we designed Cytek Shield, a file encryption tool you can use to encrypt your data locally so only you have the key.
If someone is able to gain physical access to your computer and you are not using disk encryption, they can easily steal all the information and files from your computer.
Simply having a difficult password will not stop an attacker. Even a novice hacker can use the tools to gain access; rebooting to a new operating system from a USB stick and bypassing your password, removing the hard drive completely to be read on a different computer within just a few moments, all of the information you thought was protected will be gone and in the hands of a criminal. A covered entity must be in accordance with 164.306... Implement a mechanism to encrypt and decrypt electronic protected heath information (45 CFR 164.312(a)(2)(iv)). Encryption is far easier to implement now than it ever has been. Covered Entities have many options and do not have to find themselves at risk of a compliance action or fine.
