Sensitive Emails Must be Encrypted With “CSEncrypt”

Emails containing sensitive information externally must be encrypted. “CSEncrypt” should be placed in the subject line as shown.

A reminder to Cedars-Sinai staff that sensitive information sent externally via email must be encrypted. This includes, but is not limited to: patient health information, personally identifiable information and Cedars-Sinai confidential information.

What this means for staff:

  • The phrase "CSEncrypt" must be typed into the subject line of sensitive external emails.

For additional information and tips, the Information Security webpage has more information.

"It is the responsibility of everyone at Cedars-Sinai to take the handling of sensitive information seriously," said Chris Joerg, chief information security officer. "The best practice for securing email communications is through the use of encryption technology."

If you have questions, email information.security@cshs.org or call the EIS Service Desk at 310-423-6428.
