Looks like it will take Federal legislation – in this case guided by new HIT (Health Information Technology) to drive the need for more complex authentication regulation.

In this blog we’ve said that it seems as if people, us, don’t really care about privacy, at least as evidenced by the openness with which we post our stuff and our identity in social media.

It will be very interesting to see whether or not we care the same about our health records or finances.

The Beat Goes On!

  1. I have been watching the debate around the security in Healthcare, there has been a big debate over which methods of security are best suited to add additional layers of security and authentication for account access and transaction verification without being unreasonably expensive or complex. There is a need to step up the implementation of Two-Factor authentication and make it so employees can telesign into the system and access patient data securely.
