Commentary and Opinions

Nobody can argue that cyber security and data privacy have become hot topics this year. The buzz has been felt world-wide, as people strategize on both offensive and defensive aspects. When cyber security is mentioned, many reflexively jump to thoughts of firewalls, complex passwords and malware protection.
The Boston Marathon incident is an unfortunate, tragic reminder that, as citizens, we must always remain aware, alert and diligent! Individuals must hone a “sixth sense” that helps them detect, anticipate and plan for danger in advance of it happening. People innately know when something is wrong, dangerous, or just “off,” and in those situations it is imperative to take action rather than just brushing it off. 
The cost of healthcare in the U.S. continues to soar year after year. The problem is not a result of idleness or the lack of technology, but of not addressing the core problem of patient identity.
There’s been a lot of debate lately about whether or not cyber security training is worth the investment. To engage in this debate, it is important that all parties have a common definition of cyber security training. If we define cyber security training as the act of herding people into a classroom once a year (or upon hire) to sit through the boring, antiquated style of training session that emerged 15-20 years ago, then I would have to agree, don’t bother with the investment. There are studies which prove this style of training doesn’t work.
