AuthenticID’s Data Security and Privacy Practices Will Safeguard Protected Health Information (PHI)
SEATTLE, WA – AuthenticID, a global leader in identity proofing and fraud prevention solutions, has announced that the company has now achieved HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) compliance within all AuthenticID products, demonstrating the company’s commitment to comprehensive data security for its customers.
