Protecting Your Private Information with Email Encryption
Email has become a preferred method for communication for many. In order to maintain the confidentiality of private information and ensure compliance with privacy regulations such as HIPAA, we have implemented an email encryption service through Zix Corporation. This service enables BIS Benefits to protect your personal information, such as social security numbers, Personal Health Information (PHI), and medical records from undesirable external parties on the internet.
All electronic communications which contain confidential data sent between BIS Benefits and our clients is encrypted. You will be able to receive and reply to our encrypted email communications easily and with the knowledge that others will not be able to access your information.
If you are not a current ZixCorp email encryption customer then you may receive secure email via ZixPort. In ZixPort, you will be asked to click on a link in the email, which will connect you to our Secure Message Center. There you will register a private password to retrieve and reply to our secure messages.
We also ask that any email sent to BIS, that includes PHI or any other information that needs to be kept confidential, be sent through our Secure Message Center. To access our Secure Message Center, click the button below. The first time you use the BIS Benefits Secure Message Center you will need to create a password.
We are committed to protecting proprietary information, and we’re pleased to provide this easy-to-use solution that secures our shared email communications. Our Secure Message Center is just one of the many steps, including stringent guidelines for shredding and secured offices, we have implemented to protect your confidential information.
