Website speed optimization is the make-or-break of user experience. Data shows that user engagement decreases by a whopping 25% for every second increase in a site’s loading time. The digi-world is marked by the very construct that it’s so much easier to get things done online. The World Wide Web is a competing space where the race is on to minimize user input and maximize the time of engagement. A well-designed website becomes redundant when its speed performance is below par, leading to higher churn rates and consequently a lower ROI.

What Are the HIPAA Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Requirements?

How Does SFTP Help With HIPAA Compliance?

Secure file transfer protocol (SFTP), a component of the secure shell (SSH) protocol, is useful in maintaining compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). SFTP uses encryption and algorithmic hash functions to protect information from unintended viewing or theft, and is considered a best-practice way to securely send files.

Like other standard protocols and technologies that are deployed to maintain HIPAA-compliant security, SFTP is not required specifically by the agency that regulates it, the Department of Health and Human Services. (The HHS regulates the law flexibly, allowing organizations to make their own specific decisions on means.) While you certainly do not have to use SFTP in order to stay compliant, it is a standard and straightforward way to meet the need for secure HIPAA file transfer.
