Encryption is the ‘scrambling’ or camouflaging of information—such as progress notes or names and diagnoses—by changing it into a form that cannot be understood by others. In other words, encryption translates meaningful information into a hidden form or code. Only people who have a key—usually a string of alphanumeric symbols that permit the coded information to be translated back into meaningful form—can read the document (Taube 2013).

The Trust is excited to announce that we’re now accepting American Express for professional liability insurance premium payments in response to client requests.

The Trust has been the preferred provider of professional liability insurance for the American Psychological Association, or APA, for the past five years. That endorsement was part of an agreement between The Trust and APA. As of July 1, 2018, the relationship between APA and The Trust has ended. The Trust was very interested in continuing its relationship with APA and presented several proposals which took into account APA’s membership numbers and the many ways that The Trust provides value to APA. Unfortunately, The Trust and APA could not come to an agreement on a number of terms, and APA decided to go with another company.
