Colin Powell’s Views On Healthcare Might Surprise You

When Colin Powell died earlier this week from complications of Covid-19, a flood of high praise for the retired general’s achievements and character poured into the media. Tributes were tempered only by the acknowledgment of Powell’s role in justifying the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq and a less-than-gracious public statement from former president Trump. In the recounting of Powell’s legacy, little attention has been paid to his positions on domestic policy issues which fell outside his professional roles. But today, his stance on healthcare policy could help reframe the current political debate about how to reform the nation’s healthcare system. It may also be surprising: Powell supported a national, governmental program to pay for the healthcare needs of all Americans, also known as a single-payer system. Powell famously endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 elections, but in 2013, he voiced support for a much more progressive healthcare policy approach than Obama himself.

The Security Imperative In The Healthcare Industry: Steps To Defending Telehealth And Patient Portals Against Cyber Attacks

Hackers view telemedicine as an easy target for a couple of reasons. First, you have data in motion between networks and personal devices, coupled with the rapid integration of new technologies with no unified security strategy. In addition, personally identifiable information (PII) and personal health information (PHI) is extremely valuable. As a result, cybercriminals have ramped up their efforts to find victims to steal from or demand ransoms from. Many patient portals have minimal security to make the experience for patients friction-free. Most are secured solely by a password, which means the primary vulnerability is back to the age-old problem of passwords. Passwords continue to be the Achilles' heel for systems and software across industries. If weak or compromised passwords are in use, it's increasingly likely that hackers can launch a successful account takeover (ATO).
