Is Compliance at Risk When Users Are Mobile?

Many government regulations address mobile device use, directly or indirectly, whether the device is government-issued or personally owned. For example, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule is designed to protect an individual's electronic protected health information (ePHI) that is "created, received, used, or maintained by a covered entity." Because mobile devices can store data on the device, any ePHI exchanged when using the device is at risk of unauthorized disclosure. Using a mobile device connected to a public or otherwise unsecure Wi-Fi connection also poses a risk to ePHI because those connections are easily sniffed.
