    So you can have elaborate technical security in place, but if you allow a Private Manning into the room you might as well not have bothered?

    Back in my military years, they had something called the ďhuman reliability programĒ that treated people as components of the systems they operated. It involved a lot of intrusive questions about your finances, sex life, family, mental health, etc.

    IL, child porn is sickening and I am glad that they were able to take down some of the perpetrators.

    Yes, if you tell someone your secrets or give them access to them donít be surprised if they become public knowledge. Iíve seen at least one cyber insurance claim where the claimant was a noted personality who went to the ER appearing intoxicated and someone working in the hospital shared that fact with people who had no reason to be told.

    Looks like someone at the IRS had been leaking tax return info to Pro Publica lately.

    Their privacy. HIPAA is a federal law that says that medical information canít be shared unless the patient agrees to it being shared . The hospital had a duty to protect the info that someone was in their care.
