  • Firewalls
  • Strong security protocols:  TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3
  • Strong cipher suites:
    • TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256
    • TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256
  • Alerting and Monitoring
  • Regular Vulnerability Scanning and Penetration Testing

 

Are Electronic Signatures Legal? 

Generally speaking, electronic signatures are widely accepted in most countries around the world. To lean more about the specifics in your area, we have prepared a series of articles outlining the details of legislation in a number of locations. See the list: The Legality of E-Signatures

 

What Cybersecurity Framework does WaiverFile implement?

WaiverFile develops and implements methodologies based on the cybersecurity special publications and guidance delivered by NIST, National Institute of Standards and Technology. NIST guidance is important to our customers in that it aligns to regulations of the United States Federal and State governments, as well as European Global Data Privacy Regulation and other privacy regulations, either at a federal or state level.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is the result of collaboration between private sector industry professionals and government agencies. It was borne out of Executive Order 13636, which focused on improving critical infrastructure cybersecurity. Healthcare is one of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors.

The preliminary voluntary framework came out in 2013, with version 1.0 released the following year, defining its core and implementation tiers and establishing controls, security functions, categories, subcategories, and more.

The framework integrates industry best practices and standards into a common language to help organizations understand and communicate risks internally and externally throughout a supply chain.

 

How does the implementation of a NIST Framework ensure proper cybersecurity oversight?

With the Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2014, Congress ratified the preliminary cybersecurity standards into NIST responsibilities. The framework is designed to help organizations:

  • Identify risks, vulnerabilities, and their potential impact
  • Inform response
  • Recover from incidents
  • Evaluate root causes for weaknesses and vulnerabilities
  • Take steps to improve controls to reduce risks

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework incorporates five core functions:

  1. Identify
  2. Protect
  3. Detect
  4. Respond
  5. Recover

This framework, however, has not remained static and is evolving along with today’s modern threat landscape. In 2018, amendments included self-assessments, supply chain risk management, identity and access management, and a vulnerability disclosure lifecycle.

More changes to NIST Cybersecurity guidance are anticipated, including:

  • Cyberattack lifecycle
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Machine learning
  • Governance
  • Enterprise risk management
