Jetico To Showcase HIPAA Compliant Encryption At HIMSS16

Calculate Your Data Breach Risk and Taste Finnish Chocolate at Booth #129

Jetico, pioneer in data protection software, will welcome visitors to their exhibit at HIMSS16 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas from February 29 to March 4, 2016. More than 40,000 professionals come to discuss healthcare IT issues and find innovative solutions. Jetico will proudly showcase how BestCrypt helps healthcare organizations of any size overcome challengeswith HIPAA compliant encryption software.

“Now in our third year at HIMSS," Jetico CEO Michael Waksman tells, "Jetico’s goal is to help people in healthcare IT understand the real liabilities and risks of not encrypting data."

Nearly half of all organizations in the U.S. were affected by a security incident last year1. Keeping in mind the rising trend of data breaches, the highest costs come down on the U.S. healthcare industry at $363 per compromised PHI record - more than double the $154 average cost per record across all industries2.

Waksman summarizes that “HIMSS attendees are among the highest risk group for devastating monetary, reputational and opportunity losses caused by data breaches."

And it’s not just the big names that are getting hit. More and more small- and medium-sized practices are now targeted.

“We understand that smaller healthcare offices can struggle with integrating technical solutions. Yet HIPAA regulations are tightening. With the ease, simplicity and affordability of solutions like BestCrypt, that means there are no more excuses for falling out of compliance due to lack of encryption,” says Waksman referring to Jetico’s flagship encryption solution. BestCrypt is designed to deliver an ideal solution for any covered entities that must comply with HIPAA but are concerned about frustrations related to using encryption software, such as the burden of managing keys or complicated infrastructures.

At HIMSS16, the Jetico team will be at Booth #129 to provide free consultations, helping attendees understand the particular risks they face and exploring the ways data encryption can help. In addition to a free personalized risk report based on their organization’s own needs, visitors to Booth #129 can expect to walk away with free security tools and chocolate from Finland.
