The HIPAA-compliant Data Transmission Security Policy Template is the perfect solution for businesses and organizations that must secure electronically transmitted confirmed Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). With this comprehensive template, you can easily ensure that ePHI is not improperly modified during transit or until it is disposed of. It will help you meet the rigorous data transmission security standards mandated by HIPAA Security Rule 45 CFR § 164.312(e). Implemented correctly, this template will provide a detailed level of protection over an organization’s ePHI.

HIPAA’s requirements as they relate to data in motion are complex and include rules regarding integrity, access control and encryption standards. This template offers specific policy steps for compliant transfers of ePHI including: instituting access controls; considering transmission media; analyzing technical switches; examining storage media; authenticating mobile devices and embarking in audit control measures. The data transmission security policy template helps your organization assess existing data transfer processes to determine where it needs to focus its efforts in order to comply with HIPAA regulations.
