HIPAA & HITECH: An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

HIPAA & HITECH: An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure | Big Data, Databases, and More | Scoop.it
You’ve heard the old adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to your health, the same holds true in regards to the health of your security and compliance posture. Healthcare is an increasingly attractive vertical to cyber-criminals because the information required to steal a medical identity is worth far more on the street than Social Security numbers or credit card numbers alone. Having personal health information more easily accessible to medical professionals is driving more opportunities for identity theft and medical claim fraud. According to research reported by Ponemon, “the number of medical identity theft victims in the US soared from 1.42 million in 2010 to 1.85 million in 2012.

The Morning Download: Google, Microsoft Lead Internet Firms in Spying Protest

The Morning Download: Google, Microsoft Lead Internet Firms in Spying Protest | Big Data, Databases, and More | Scoop.it
Good morning. Eight major companies, led by Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp., are calling for tighter controls on surveillance of their customers’ data by governments world-wide.
Logicworks's insight:

Eight major companies, led by Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp., are calling for tighter controls on surveillance of their customers’ data by governments world-wide. It is the broadest and strongest effort by the companies, often archrivals, to speak with one voice to pressure the government, the NYT’s Edward Wyatt and Claire Cain Miller write. Of course, the Internet companies depend upon much of the same information that governments wants. They are counting on the idea that people distinguish among who puts that data to use, and how. If that distinction is blurred, their business could be at risk.

Data Transfers from the EU: Ensuring Protection in Hosted Solutions

Data Transfers from the EU: Ensuring Protection in Hosted Solutions | Big Data, Databases, and More | Scoop.it
Hosted Solutions play a pivotal role in ensuring data security, domestically, but especially when cross continental data transfers are concerned.
Logicworks's insight:

Among the European responses to the release of documents by Edward Snowden was a plethora of proposals to create cloud providers that would host data exclusively on servers located in Europe.  The basis of this reaction may be found in the European privacy laws, which place severe constraints upon disclosures of personal data (data that can be linked to an identifiable person).  For reasons steeped in history, the greatest concern of many countries is the prospect of the U.S. government accessing personal data of non-U.S. nations. How do these laws affect U.S.-based companies in their decisions on information governance?

Achieving Compliance with Backup-as-a-Service

Achieving Compliance with Backup-as-a-Service | Big Data, Databases, and More | Scoop.it

Backing up corporate systems and data stores is an essential best practice and must be a top priority for
IT and business decision makers in organizations of all sizes and in all industries. Although one of the primary
reasons for IT to back up servers and data stores is to be able to restore content after a system fault, the primary
business driver for backing up content is compliance with the large and growing number of recordkeeping and record retention laws at all levels of government.

However, there are four difficult problems associated with backup in the context of compliance:

Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, December 12, 2013 8:01 AM

A good Data Scientist does more than just analyze data and the creation of models. Unleashing the value of big data is only a small part of the job description. They understand both the business data as well as the statistical toolkit needed to analyze and visualize the data. They make it digestible and have the analyses fit a purpose, so one can see in one glance which data relationships matter and share the background (what’s excluded is as important as what’s included). Most of all, they explain the causality and impact in executive language, compelling reasons to act, thus transforming reactive analytics into predictive analytics.
