National Privacy AllianceIn an effort to address the rampant problem of sensitive information being transmitted insecurely over e-mail, NPA has created a way to safely communicate.
Rather than sending standard e-mail from point A to point B, a user creates a message using NPA's simple interface. Just like standard e-mail programs, NPA provides a space for Subject, Recipients (To:, CC: and BCC), Message Body and even Attachments. When users are are done creating a message, they click Send and NPA's neutri.PHI™ process begins.
Using the latest Blowfish algorithm and keys from the sender and the recipient(s), the message is encrypted and stored in the user's online archive. Next, a notice is sent to recipients telling them that the user has sent them a secure message and providing a link to retrieve it. Since this is only a notification, there is no sensitive risk information within the e-mail being exposed.
The special link will take the recipient to a simple username/password authentication process on NPA's secure web portal. As long as a user stays logged in from a particular computer, their authentication remains valid and they may quickly read, reply, reply-all, forward and compose secure messages.
NPA makes it easy to be compliant with HIPAA guidelines!
