Achieving HIPAA Security Rule Compliance with Lumension Solutions

Achieving HIPAA Security Rule Compliance with Lumension Solutions

The HIPAA Security Rule consists of three safe- guards and two general requirements (Administra- tive Safeguards, Physical Safeguards, Technical Safeguards, Organizational Requirements, and Policies and Procedures and Documentation Re- quirements). In all, these encompass 22 Standards and 42 Implementation Specifications, of which 20 are Required and 22 are Addressable. Required Implementation Specifications are those for which the covered entity muST implement policies and/or procedures which meet the implementation specifi- cation requirements. Addressable Implementation Specifications are those that the covered entity must assess whether it is a reasonable and appro- priate safeguard in their environment; if not, they must implement an equivalent alternative measure. Standards without additional Implementation Spec- ifications are also considered required.

Preparing for the HIPAA Security Rule Again; now, with Teeth from the HITECH Act!

Preparing for the HIPAA Security Rule Again; now, with Teeth from the HITECH Act!

Most experts originally agreed that the HIPAA Security Rule requirements are much more extensive than the HIPAA Privacy Rule! To make matters worse, most healthcare companies or medical practices covered by the Rule had and still have limited staff resources to implement an initiative to comply with the Security Rule. And available information security consulting expertise in many communities may be limited and expensive. The upshot has been: very poor information security in the healthcare industry.

EU’S Cybercrime and Cyber Security Rule-Making: Mapping the Internal and External Dimensions of EU Security

EU’S Cybercrime and Cyber Security Rule-Making: Mapping the Internal and External Dimensions of EU Security

The EU’s Strategy for cyber security was finally published in early 2013 and it follows many less than successful or complete policy initiatives in this area. These include a proposal for an Networks and Information Policy in 2001, soft law strategies and various programmes, instruments and policies on so-called Critical Infrastructure, policies that did not establish binding legal obligations upon the operators of critical infrastructures. 26 This reliance upon soft law to regulate cyber risk has been overtaken. Cyber security is depicted in the EU’s Strategy as referring to ‘the safeguards and actions that can be used to protect the cyber domain, both in the civilian and military fields, from those threats that are associated with or that may harm its interdependent networks and information infrastructure.’ 27 This generates three definitional questions concerning cyber risk. Firstly, the relationship of Cyber Security and confidentiality of information with data protection matters is ostensibly of much significance from the type of harm formulation but is not reflected in the Strategy or its legal tools, discussed next. Secondly, its definition presupposes the relevance of militarisation to it conceptually. The militarisation of cyber offences is perceived to be a distinctive feature of cyber security particularly in the US and accordingly, there is much debate concerning the application of international law relating to war on cyber-attacks. 28 While the text of the Council of Europe Convention itself does not mention terrorism, a listed activity on the website of the Council of Europe is cyber-terrorism. 29 However, the Strategy does not appear to be substantively motivated by or governed by such concerns as to risk overall. Thirdly, the Strategy describes cybercrime to include a range of different criminal activities, not precisely as in the Convention, only approximately so. 30 Its definition of cybercrime has generated

Preparing for the HIPAA Security Rule Again; now, with Teeth from the HITECH Act!

Enter the HITECH Act which many describe as a “game-changer” and “ground-breaking”. Many accurately observe that healthcare industry woefully unprepared for major changes in fifteen (15) key areas. Without a doubt, HITECH is the largest and most consequential expansion and change to the federal privacy and security rules ever. The fifteen (15) change areas comprise new federal privacy and security provisions that will have major financial, operational and legal consequences for all hospitals, medical practices, health plans, and now their “BAs,” and some vendors and service providers that were not previously considered “BAs.”

Crossbreed Advanced Security against Pishing
and Spoofing

Crossbreed Advanced Security against Pishing and Spoofing

In the current scenario, there are several sites which are not secure as per the HTTPS security rule and SSL certification but the browser hardly recognizes these parameters for processing. Our basic problem is to create a browsing system which would consist a log files for the SSL certification and HPPS content problem. When the user would surf through the browser, it would check the contrast from the log file and will confirm it whether it is secured in terms of HTTPS and further on the same procedure would be followed for SSL certification error. A warning message will be issued if we get a negative feedback from the browser log file and the user will be warned for the same. By this manner we can increase the security for the browsing system and from the unauthorized access of the content which are phishing. The effectiveness of phishing bother is reducing when users can consistently differentiate and authenticate security sign. Sorry to say, current and related application programs have complex design, then clients have the subsequent problems: A. Source Identification: - Phishing attack starts with various URL techniques such misleadingly named link, cloaked links, Redirected links, Obfuscated links, programmatically obscured links and Map links [23]. Client cannot correctly determine the domain name of the website page with URL https://www.icicionline.com/dsw?psw/index12365was considered significantly less trustworthy than a page whose URL was http://www.icici.com. Here, the material of these two pages was the same, and the first page was actually SSL confined, but was silent given an inferior rating [24]. B. The Client Knowledge & Locality: - When client receive the misguiding email for phishing site which may be look same as original email, educated or technically sound user can primary check this mail is authentic or not by observing the content &

Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007/Server 2010

Mail Security uses match lists to filter email messages and attachments for specific words, terms, and phrases. In order to implement a match list, you must associate it with a content or file filtering rule. When the rule is applied to scan messages, it also scans for the terms in the match list. Mail Security provides pre-configured match lists for use with the File Name Rule or with content filtering rules. You can create new match lists and delete or edit words in an existing match list. Match lists support literal strings, DOS wildcard-style expressions, or regular expressions. See “About regular expressions” on page 166. See “About DOS wildcard style expressions” on page 165.
