The Department of Health and Human Services (the agency responsible for managing HIPAA compliance among healthcare providers) lists recent breaches at https://ocrportal.hhs.gov/ocr/breach/breach_report.jsf – think of it as their “Wall of Shame.” Find an article online that discusses a breach or violation of a regulation, such as HIPAA, or of a standard such as PCI-DSS, GLBA, or FERPA. You can also look at Federal Agencies and discuss those that have not had sufficient controls in place (think of the breach that the Office of Personnel Management had). Summarize the article in your own words and address the controls that the organization should have had in place, but didn’t, that facilitated the breach. What were the ramifications to the organization and the individuals involved?
Do NOT post the article or include word document of your write-up – post only your summary discussion directly and a link to the article. Please follow proper APA style with a minimum of two references.
