However, if the Secretary of Health and Human Services does not issue timely guidance, the term “unsecured protected health information” shall mean

protected health information that is not secured by a technology standard that renders protected health information unusable, unreadable, or indecipherable to unauthorized individuals and is developed or endorsed by a standards developing organization that is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).[2]
