Nevada encryption law:
This is the first I've heard of it, but apparently
there's a new law in Nevada that requires the encryption of any "personal information" (name + either SSN, driver's license number, or [account number + password]) if it's sent by electronic means other than fax outside the business. Presumably this would apply to healthcare businesses as well, potentially meaning that electronic claims transmissions must be encrypted.
Anyone know more about this? Post a comment if you do.
