Security Threat Watch
Monday, July 3, 2006
Created for you by Network Computing & Neohapsis
Consumer and employee privacy have been a hot topic in recent months. It seems that scarcely a week goes by without a report of at least one large privacy breach, many of these in government agencies. In fact, government breaches have reached such a peak lately that a memo was released giving government agencies 45 days to comply with certain security standards, including the encryption of classified data and increased standards for authentication with remote systems. The most severe of these recent breaches involved the loss of information on 26.5 million people when the laptop of a Department of Veterans Affairs employee was stolen from his home.
This week, however, brings a bit of good news. The VA laptop was recovered. Apparently, the system was turned in to the FBI. And, the FBI reports that initial forensic analysis of the system suggests the classified data does not appear to have been accessed while the laptop was unaccounted for. A more comprehensive analysis is reportedly underway, and the results will be made public soon. No arrests have been made.
Until next issue,
