Encryption Expert on NJ Hospital Patient Data Breach

Richard Blech, CEO and Co-Founder of Secure Channels, commented on the NJ hospital patient data breach:

“This breach, like many of the others that have occurred, are going to continue with the same pattern and results so long as these institutions that hold consumer sensitive data treat the protection of said data as an afterthought. The insider threat is now commonplace as a result of pure economics. The black market value of stolen customer data is fluid and high, and the payoff for the insider is just too tempting. Institutions know this, yet believe that they either don’t need to protect the data or that they sufficiently have at the perimeter. In this case – as with the other breaches – advanced encryption should have been utilized at all points in their infrastructure to fully protect that sensitive data. Doing this would allow only authorized users to access and decrypt sensitive data on an as-needed, immediately tracked basis, tightly containing the data’s availability. The thief would have stolen deeply encrypted data, which would have been only useless bit and bytes to them.”

Secure Channels‘ robust, state-of-the-art PKMS2® encryption renders all types of data fully protected and unreadable. eliminating any potential for back door access and mining – by governmental agencies and even by Secure Channels’ own systems and personnel. It is recognized as being orders of magnitude more secure than all known commercial security industry encryption methods.
