Gotta read that fine print.
 
Good thing the healthcare provider had insurance to cover such a data breach, eh? What do you mean it doesn't cover security boneheadedness?
After 2 months of patient data exposed for anyone to see, Cottage Health System's insurance policy should have come as a relief. It didn't.

I believe I've shared this before, but it bears sharing again. Even if you can't afford college, you can educate yourself.

There are very bad provision in the Trade In Services Agreement. Bad for governments, bad for citizens, bad for pretty much everyone. Yet through secrecy and fast tracking (if fast track becomes law), like the TPP, is likely to become binding unless we do something about it.
A February 2015 draft of the secret Trade In Services Agreement (TISA) was leaked again last week, revealing a more extensive and more recent text than that of portions from an April 2014 leak that we covered last year.

According to the data, we're relatively safe here in the U.S. Doesn't mean we should let our guard down, but maybe we should be rethinking some of those rights infringing practices of dubious benefit.

Discussing online privacy, security and intellectual property since 2005.
Introduction

Herbert (Bert) Knabe Jr. is a blogger specializing in online security, privacy and intellectual property. He has long been a fan of Apple computers and occasionally writes on their products. He has been online since the mid 1980's. He has been blogging on a variety of topics including U.S. policy and online privacy/security since 2005.

He has twenty years experience in the newspaper industry, initially as a production artist, then as a computer technician supporting content producers. This experience gives him a strong understanding of graphic production for print and web.

Photography has long been a passion of Bert's, and he was honored to have a photo included in the PDF version of the 2011 Plus One Collection. He specializes in cell and smart phone photography. He recently started a blog for the dual purpose of sharing his photos and providing reviews and tips for aspiring cell phone photographers.
