HIPAA Auditor Involved in Own Data Breach

Who audits the auditor? 

Check out Identity Finder’s recent post about the HIPPA auditor that was responsible for their own breach.  HIPAA Auditor Involved in Own Data Breach.  What seems to be a recurring song these days is how these organizations tend to minimize the value and impact of the data loss.  The data did not contain this or that or some other statement designed to offset its political impact.

Many nefarious people take the time to collect information from separate sources and combine the data to build a complete profile of someone’s identity.  This information is available to the highest bidder.  Just name your price.

Corporate identity theft is now a lot like what we technology people tell people about disk drives and other hardware.  It is not about if it will fail, it is about when it will fail.

No one is exempt.  Of course some organizations are bigger targets, but everyone needs to start addressing the potential for data loss.  Fire drills save lives.  Written Information Security Plans (WISP) save companies that would otherwise have no alternative than bankruptcy.

With so much information available online and the mounting number of data breaches there has to be a better solution.   Dolvin works with industry experts Cyber Security Auditors & Administrators (CSA2) to assess and manage your security risk.  Contact us today to see how we are different.
