Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as referral information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us over an SSL certificate with 256-bit encryption to keep data secure. MEDVAL uses a number of computer security systems to protect information. Our FTP server supports TLS/SSL, online referrals go through our website’s SSL for encryption, and e-mails come across using TLS on our Exchange Server. All records are held in a secure computing environment.
In addition to technical measures, we also train our staff on computer security and have a set of security protocols in place. The security protocols are reviewed and reinforced as part of our ongoing training program. All offices are alarmed and monitored, individual computer workstations are secured and hard copy records are stored in a locked bin prior to shredding. Any computers/servers in which MEDVAL stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
