Here are some stats that will blow your mind: Every minute of every day, 48 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube, Google receives over 2 million queries, over 100,000 tweets are sent and nearly 600 new websites are created. Perhaps most shocking is that quietly in the background, all of this data is tracked and stored. But what happens to it after that?
Obviously, today’s Internet is filled with vast amounts of data. When only a few short years ago a search would yield varied results, today search engines, social networks and even advertisers have realized that information must be culled, filtered and targeted for their consumers. In order to do this, many of these services collect data about you. Whil…
The passage of HIPAA Omnibus Rule heralds a new era of accountability for organizations that fall under the category of ‘business associates’ to a healthcare provider. The new rule has made some sweeping changes to the penalty system applied to each HIPAA violation category. Before you jump the gun and start worrying about the hefty fines, read this post to know whether you actually fit the role of a ‘business associate’ under the new rule.
The New Penalty System
Under the new rule, civil monetary penalties for noncompliance have been increased based on the level of violation. So, any breach of PHI (Protected Health Information) – whether intentional or accidental – can potentially set you back …

Before this law was enacted, it was the responsibility of healthcare providers (hospitals, clearinghouses, insurance companies, etc.) to report to HHS about any breach into the protected health information (PHI) that they store. And they had to comply with the detailed HIPAA Privacy Rule and HIPAA Security Rule in order to show that the PHI had been properly safeguarded, and not b…
Today, the entire healthcare industry is abuzz over the latest development – the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. And all those businesses associated with healthcare providers – in some way or the other – are looking for some answers in that 500+ page proclamation, because certain clauses of the enhanced law have given them new obligations.
Early this year, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced HIPAA Omnibus Rule, a collection of reformations to HIPAA, in order to strengthen the privacy and security protections for health information. Promulgated on March 26th, this law is about to give two new responsibilities to the business associates of healthcare providers:

Lately, the digital identities of users have evolved into playing a significant role in specifying how users interact with computer networks, thus making the IAM programs more and more complex.
Identity and Access Management has become one of the most celebrated, and at the same time, dreaded term in IT management. In the present days of cutting-edge technology, IAM has evolved into a branch of science and has been perceived as a very difficult process. IT administrators have to find innovative ways to deal with the new challenges that today’s technologies and business demands throw at them.
Procuring industry-level IAM information, processes, implementation stories, what worked for whom, etc. can b…

A Password acts as the battlefront to a user accounts security. The role of choosing a secure password is not only limited to the end-user but also the administrator who devices the policy for restricting or creation of such a password.

For instance, Hackers (External Users) are constantly on the look-out for loopholes in an organization’s security system in-order to gain access to sensitive information; User accounts that do not have a password stay right on top-of their attack list. One cannot discount the role of insiders in a security breach; stats reveal that an estimated …
