Although Whatsapp has AES 256 Bit (end-to-end) encryption which encrypts data independently between sender and receiver, it is crucially not IG compliant. Whatsapp servers are also domiciled in various countries that are not in the UK. This leads to a loss of control and ownership of sensitive data
In order to be compliant in the NHS, communication devices have to conform to the NHS IG toolkit, be ISO compliant and conform to Caldicott Principles. Fortunately, Medic Bleep is secure, IG compliant and is dedicated to healthcare professionals only.
