ZixCorp Email Encryption Services use a set of comprehensive lexicons to scan for sensitive information, such as personal health information (PHI) or personal financial information in electronic messages. Searches are conducted by scanning all message subjects, bodies and attachments for sensitive information defined within the lexicons.
A lexicon is a file consisting of a comprehensive set of terms, phrases, expressions and pattern masks that identify sensitive types of information. Sensitive information is defined as any information that, when inappropriately disclosed, can lead to significant contractual or legal liabilities; serious damage to your organization’s image and reputation; or legal, financial, or business losses.
ZixCorp uses many sources to generate the lexicon content that is used to search for sensitive information, including federal regulations, authoritative reference sources on the subject and “standard of care” practices.
