Data Security and the Importance of Training
We take pride in collecting and managing biometric screening data with extreme care. Keeping our clients’ sensitive information safe is a top concern, and effective data security begins with training.
Biometric screening staff are trained through Well U, our online training platform. They’re given mandatory, in-depth HIPAA training that is role-specific. Every individual must pass all relevant courses in Well U to become a WCS employee and attend screening events.
Along with highly-trained staff, our technology is constantly updated to maintain the highest level of data security in the industry. ScreenSmart 3.0, our proprietary tablet technology, is on the forefront of this innovation.
Participants see this security first-hand at every screening event. We blogged recently about all the ways that ScreenSmart protects data integrity:
- Protections during the check-in process
- Multiple layers of identity verification, at every step of the process
- Encrypted data transfer, with no data stored on the tablet
ScreenSmart is just one way that we use technology to streamline the screening process and keep our clients’ data secure.
