|Beyond HIPAA: New Jersey Law Requires Encryption of Personal Data by Health Insurance Carriers|
Epstein Becker Green
Jan. 30, 2015
"Although New Jersey already has a law requiring notification to individuals in the event of a data breach of their personal information, the new law is aimed at preventing breaches in the first place and further reducing the risks of misappropriation and identity theft. In addition, while HIPAA mandates the protection of personal information, HIPAA suggests encryption only when sufficient risk is identified and encryption is reasonable. New Jersey's new law goes a step further by mandating that all computerized data be rendered 'unreadable, undecipherable, or otherwise unusable by an unauthorized person.' "
