EBPA Secure Transfer System (STS) Security Update
Over the next few weeks, the EBPA Data Security Team will be implementing changes in our Secure Transfer Service to better protect your data.
The focus of the Data Security Team is protecting our systems and your health information from cyber criminals and other malicious actors. EBPA is continuously working to reduce security risks and impacts on members protected health information (PHI). These changes are expected to be implemented by October 15, 2023.
STS Web Based Logins
- Increasing the frequency of web UI Password life to 90 days.
- Implementing 2 Factor Authentication on web UI logins.
File Retention on the STS Web Page
- Files posted in our facility will be removed from the STS server after 15 days. Reducing this retention period reduces the risk of a large amount of data being available in the event of a breach.
