C&C...Onlist responses...Security or Privacy

    Looking for some onlist responses on this Friday following the Fourth of July.  I hope everyone had a blast (no pun...ok...maybe a little one!).

    Question...think about the idea of how much focus is going on within your organization on either Privacy or Security.  Now we probably all understand that there is certainly some intersection between the two, especially since those of you involved with HIPAA privacy realize that part of your area of oversight under the Privacy Rule includes that you will also be involved in Security.

    Which of the two...Privacy or Security is giving you the most challenges say in the last 3 - 6 months?

    Let's just start out with ONLIST responses indicating either Privacy or Security...and then see where this takes us.  Happy 5th of July...after all...it's FRIDAY!

    This is a tough call for me. Privacy is an issue because staff often "don't know what they don't know". However, Security tends to get the spotlight due to concrns about ransomware and breaches of ePHI. I'll say Security.​

    Privacy-social media has been a challenge in getting people to understand the privacy implications and then applying sanctions appropriately.

    We have had a lot of infrastructure changes recently (a new data network, change in email set up, etc), so we have been focusing on security.

    Security for sure.  I like Randy's response, staff don't know what they don't know, and unless they know and report, then I don't know as much.  But, security is huge write now, we are putting a big emphasis on it as we as a government agency have been experiencing a lot of attacks.

    Gut is Security. Privacy is like a low, constant buzz - always something going on there with being sure staff understands what is and is not permissible, etc. - but Security when there is something to address, feels bigger.  If that makes sense (hey, it's Friday after a holiday, brain already half into weekend mode....)

    Security is the wild card.  It is unsettling, since you know that you may be one email or careless click away from a major breach.  Privacy feels more manageable, though it is a constant challenge, due to the same challenges stemming from human error.

    Definitely security.  With all of the attempts at phishing, hacking, malware, ransomware, and other email scams, something happens on a regular basis.  I have conducted multiple trainings and have started an awareness campaign throughout the company.
