SECURITY BY DESIGN
The protection of your data is our highest priority. By design, Hugo leverages best practices for physical, administrative and technical safeguards.
Hugo works on behalf of health care consumers - people who are exercising their legal right to obtain and use their own health information. Once a HIPAA “covered entity” releases health information to you, the responsibility to protect it is transferred from them to you.
In addition to following HIPAA security recommendations and standards used by the financial industry, Hugo adheres to the FTC's Security by Design Guidelines:
- Data security is carefully considered for each component of the Hugo platform
- Data is encrypted both in transit and at rest
- Hugo is protected from common vulnerabilities
- Our team stays current with knowledge of new vulnerabilities and keeps software appropriately updated
