The President quoted that the new war is not going to be fought on the physical battlefield. It's going to be being fought in cyberspace, which probably comes as no surprise to anyone who follows cyber security.
There’s a lot of different views on what the future of telehealth should be. I personally am the mother of a special needs child and typically travel two hours to get his care. And now during the pandemic, I have the luxury, is that the right word? The luxury of speaking to his clinician minus having to mask up and drive two hours. It’s actually been incredibly helpful, but that's only one patient’s use case.
Cyber threats are like pirates offshore. With this analogy it would usually be the US Navy or similar who would go after them. We do need some sort of federal cyber rescue plan.
If you could picture cybersecurity like a door, are four double bolts enough or is it five? The HIPAA security rule does give some latitude in terms of how you establish meeting your security requirements.
