Security

“Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”  Helen Keller

In life there are not certainties, but in technology there are certainties.  Keeping your identity and personal information secure online is a very important.  If you do not have the correct security credentials in place, hackers and even people who don’t know what they are doing can take your information and just destroy your reputation and your credibility.  Below are some ways to keep your information safe by keeping the security tighter.

  • Longer passwords are harder to crack, so go big and go random.
  • Don’t reuse passwords.  Create different passwords for each entity (e-mail, social media, etc.)
  • Don’t use personal information for password reset questions.

Finally Spring?

Despite some freak snowfall last weekend, it looks like we might actually have a real live spring on our hands here in Alaska. There’s some budding green bits on the tree outside my office, the pussywillows are puffy, and the sun stays in the sky until late into the evening. It’s been a long winter, and I’m ready to leave it behind.

I’ve been pretty light on the blog-front this month due to some very important projects that have been occupying my time. Our Administrative Compliance Project Specialist left us after several years of service, and while we scrambled to find her replacement, I ended up heading the effort to celebrate National Compliance Week here at The Arc of Anchorage. Every day we ran random compliance inspections in unlocked offices, leaving pass or fail slips on keyboards to make employees mindful of their surroundings at all times.

We’re also working hard to tighten our security here, both electronic and physical. As one consultant said, “HIPAA compliance isn’t a goal, it’s a process. Every day you should be more compliant than the day before.”

I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, trying to figure out what I can do on my end, as Therap administrator, to help us be more compliant than the day before. I’ll keep you posted. Emoticon showing smiley face

Excited about new tech….

I’m looking forward to the new technology that is coming out soon for Therap. The GPS option to use to track location on mobile devices is going to be interesting (if not scary!) when we find out if staff are really where they say they are. I’m hoping that some major changes are going to improve the MAR soon, I know it is in the works.
