What are Enclaves and Why Are They Important for Handling CUI?

One of our country’s more important assets is its information. The U.S. IT infrastructure carries private information covering things like financial information, private information, defense and military information or information that is critical to the operation of government agencies. Some information is classified, and some, while not deemed sensitive enough to classify, are protected as Controlled Unclassified Information, or CUI.

CUI is protected under government regulation, which means that if your business wants to work with federal or defense agencies, it must meet regulations to participate.

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996. HIPAA was put into place to protect patient data from theft or loss. 

Why is this important? Private Health Information (PHI) is considered some of the most sensitive data that a person can have. It was determined that it was critical to protect PHI for patients and that this responsibility fell on healthcare providers who used that information for treatment, research, or billing purposes. 

With the emergence of electronic PHI (ePHI) and digital technologies like networked communication and electronic recordkeeping, HIPAA became that much more important. HIPAA was therefore conceptualized to protect ePHI no matter where it is.
