Getting Data Security Right: Healthcare, Retail, Financial Services and Government By Alan Kessler It seems like every time I write a blog, a new breach has occurred (for an up-to-date look at local, state and federal breaches I suggest you periodically review the Identity Theft Resource Center’s running list). Since I last penned a post, we’ve seen breaches of the Mayo Clinic, Citizen’s Bank, CVS and Arkansas BlueCross/BlueShield. To the average person, most breaches probably bleed together. If you’ve seen one breach, you’ve seen them all, right? If we’re going off of that logic, then one might assume all industries can take the same data security approach. I’m here to tell you this line of thinking is very short-sighted. When it comes to data security, diverse industries require diverse data protection strategies.

Healthcare Data – An Ounce of Prevention is Worth A Pound Of Cure

Code Blue For Your Healthcare Data Few look forward to a doctor’s visit. Unfortunately, this is more the case than ever before, and it is not because of what you might think. Today, patients worry about the information they may have to divulge at the doctor’s office and where it might end up. They say that the best way to stay healthy is to not go to the doctor at all and alarmingly it may also be the best way to keep your confidential information safe.

SaaS Bill of Rights By @Vormetric | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

SaaS Bill of Rights - It's All About the SaaS By Alan Kessler Recently, we released the results from the cloud edition of our 2015 Insider Threat Report. My colleagues Andy Kicklighter and CJ Radford delved into the results in their blog posts from March 24 and March 26, and I’ve gone into a bit more detail about the findings below. But, the purpose of this blog is to do two things: a) discuss what we hear matters when it comes to successful and safe SaaS consumption and delivery and b) with this feedback in mind, outline the tools and capabilities necessary to make this happen. ...
