Gotta keep those conviction numbers up to justify your DHS endowments. What matter if you destroy a few lives in the process?
...an unnamed small Nevada hosting provider was the subject of an intense and unannounced BSA audit on Thursday...
Yes, "arrested in Maldives" is one of the two conflicting stories I mentioned. I have also seen stories that said that he was arrested in Guam. The Maldives story seems to be coming from the Russians.
I've seen two different stories. 1) He was arrested in Maldives and taken to Guam, and 2) He was arrested in Guam. In any case, there's obviously enough confusion about the story that we're not getting accurate information. Given that, if he were arrested in Maldives, it's certainly possible that it was with the help of the local police and just not being reported.
His inability to handle the data securely in no way absolves him of responsibility to adhere to HIPAA regulations. "I don't know how" is not a defense and he should be (rightfully) penalized.
Massive privacy breach....e-mailed a report...containing sensitive details...e-mailed...
The problem here isn't that it was sent to the wrong account. It's that it was e-mailed AT ALL.
Stop allowing the perpetrators to hide behind the corporate veil.
Well, if you live within 100 miles inside the boarder, you have no Rights anyway. Stands to reason it would be even more so outside the border.
OK. They are really stretching the word "free" here. Free = $300 + greedily scooping up your data with this service now or in the future? No, that's far from free.
Compared to the anal probing from Comcast et. al.? Yeah, it's free.
This sounds like Y2K all over again...
What, that legitimate problem lots of people worked on successfully to avoid before it could have major consequences? Yeah, I agree.
Yeah, and after all that work to prepare, the rest of the world said "I don't know why you nerds made such a big deal out of this. Nothing happened!" It's enough to make you want to quit your job, cut the soles off your shoes, sit in a tree and learn to play the flute.
They should show them pirated pirate movies.
The NSA has not been caught red-handed, either. The article even points out that the pictures have not been independently verified.
What does "obsolete" mean? If his writing instrument does what he needs it to do and he's happy using it, then more power to him. Who's to tell him he can't use it, or an IBM Selectric, or even a quill pen and vellum? Nothing is obsolete if it still works for your needs.
If they're not a NASA astronaut, why would they?
