.ccsecure Files

Jennifer Thi's picture

CipherCloud is constantly scanning for UCSF PHI in the background, when it discovers UCSF PHI in a file, it encrypts the file and replaces the file with a file of the same name and a .ccsecure extension. Once a file has been encrypted, it cannot be searched or previewed because its contents can only be accessed by the CipherCloud agent.

For more details on what Cipher Cloud encrypts, please visit here.

Example

Original File: MyPatientData.xlsx
Encrypted File: MyPatientData.xlsx.ccsecure

To open your .ccsecure file, you will need to install the CipherCloud agent.
