Some may also consider dumping proactive threat protection, but that’s a whole other post…
This week we discuss and look into Digi Cert's acquisition of Symantec's certificate authority business unit, Log Me In's Last Pass Premium price hike, the troubling case of Marcus Hutchins' post-Defcon arrest, another instance of Wanna Cry-style SMBv1 propagation, this week's horrific Io T example, some hopeful Io T legislation, the consequences of rooting early Amazon Echoes, the drip drip drip of Wikileaks Vault 7 drips again, Mozilla's VERY interesting easy-to-use secure large file encrypted store and forward service, the need to know what your VPN service is really up to, a bit of errata, miscellany, and some closing-the-loop feedback from our always-attentive terrific listeners.
An effective SSO implementation and centralized password management system simplifies HIPAA and HITECH compliance without negatively impacting care providers or IT staff.

Imprivata One Sign Single Sign-On addresses access challenges by significantly reducing clicks and eliminating the need to remember or enter application usernames and passwords.
