Immuta’s HIPAA Playbook and the Changing Nature of Health Data

It’s been 15 years since the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began enforcing the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s “Privacy Rule,” which set forth two main strategies to de-identify, and thereby legally use and disclose, protected data.

Homomorphic Encryption Alone Is Security, Not Privacy

I’ve seen written many times that “Privacy can be improved with techniques like differential privacy and homomorphic encryption”.  Sure, but for totally different reasons.   Homomorphic encryption is an added layer of security that allows computation against encrypted data without decrypting it.  Without homomorphic encryption, databases must first decrypt the data before they can answer...
