How We Protect Your Personal Information

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected online.

How We Safeguard Protected Health Information

All protected health information (PHI) is stored in a secured, encrypted database that may only be accessed by users specifically authorized by Prest & Associates. All PHI in this database is encrypted, which helps protect this information from unauthorized access and modification.

Delegated Activities

Prest & Associates stores PHI in a SSAE 16 SOC 2 compliant data center which is one of the highest security standards available today. Additionally, security policies and procedures, data protection mechanisms, security layers and data encryption measures have been implemented to prevent unauthorized access. All Prest information technology hardware (computers, hard drives, monitors, printers) is securely destroyed by a certified equipment retirement company. Risk analysis services are delegated to a HIPAA security compliance service and include penetration testing to identify threats, risks and vulnerabilities to protected customer data.
