Identillect's secure email and secure electronic signature is the simplest system on the market. The Company's products provide the sender complete control of their information, maintaining total security while complying with all United States and Canadian data handling regulations. One of the most significant data handling regulations is the medical regulation system in the United States called HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). HIPAA has quickly become the template for establishing regulatory requirements for all other industries.
HIPAA affects all medical facilities, insurance, medical sales, and all entities that support these organizations. Medical information is the most complete record of an individual, which is why it is the most desired from an identity theft perspective. Every year HIPAA regulations have become more stringent due to the substantial increase in identity theft. To ensure enforcement of these regulatory requirements, HIPAA is now in the secondary phase of auditing these organizations. One of the major areas of compliance is ensuring data is encrypted in transit, and this is where Identillect is seeing its major growth.
Phase two audits have already imparted $36M in fines from January to May of 2016 for noncompliance and estimates suggest the latter half of the year will more than double this number. Almost 90% of healthcare organizations have experienced a data breach in the past 24 months with 45% of those experiencing five or more breaches in that period of time. Data breach costs for medical entities are averaging more than $2.2M and supportive organizations at more than $1M.
