Piedmont and Providence: Feds finally put teeth into HIPAA
, according to ComputerWeek. I'm not so sure. So far, nothing's come from Piedmont, except other audits and an attractive government contract for PwC. And Providence was a settlement of a bad (in the sense of being high-profile) data breach, and the penalty amount isn't really enough to scare too many people. Hopefully these news items bring back some needed focus, but I don't really seem them as some watershed or sea change (if I can so mix my metaphors).
