How could Dynamic Duo be issued a citation for an ergonomics violation? Jack Richter says, "I thought Bush got rid of that stupid regulation." What is your response? It is evident that Jack Richter cannot see the importance of the safety regulation. It is clear on the website legal problems a company can land up for violating the regulations especially when it is concerned with patient safety.
UAL Corporation The plaintiff, Kevin Sporer argues that UAL breached his privacy and wrongfully fired him. Sporer was an employee with UAL for over 20 years, and ended his employment under “at will” status (Moran, 2014). In 2007, Sporer received an email that contained pornographic material through the company’s email system, in which he forwarded to his personal email account. Sporer then sent an email to the sender of the pornographic material requesting him to not send any further messages that contain inappropriate contents due to the organization’s strict policies. During a routine audit, UAL’s Information Security Department crossed the pornographic email that Sporer forwarded to his personal email.
Moreover, people don’t blame those networks because they mostly advertise things that they had looked up online, which some people might find useful. In this case, the data collected for this company would be about people’s health, which makes the information more personal and confidential, and the ads would be directed to them specifically which could even become disturbing at one point. Thus, it could damage the company’s image, which has already been attacked on the internet multiple times. Futhermore, it is important to add that the company has been doing well without carrying out of these
Diebel blames attributes the blame to banks when they chose security questions to "improve their security measures for online banking" (2). She says that other websites probably assumed the banks knew what they were doing and followed suit (2). She states that security questions are much more insecure than they seem at first glance, and "the answers to many of them can be easily researched or guessed" (3). She also points out incidents of famous people 's accounts getting hacked into via security questions (5), followed by an example of a recent cyber attack on average people (6, 7). Diebel also includes a quote from a cybersecurity expert stating that one reason security questions are still used is because of convenience, instead of having good security (8).
With this regulation, sick people would only get sicker because they can’t afford the medications. Moreover, this accord also forces Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to monitor the users’ activities in the Internet. TPP requires the Internet intermediaries to filter all communications in the Internet for potentially copyright-infringing materials and disclose their customers’ identity to IP rights-holders. This basically means that the ISP will be spying on their users and give away their users’ identities along with their private data, meaning the customers’ privacy are not safe anymore. The Internet users can’t post their ideas freely in the Internet anymore, as only sharing a link to a social media might already be considered as a copyright infringement act.
Tate writes that Facebook scans our computers for data such as credit card info, credit rating, home ownership, income, and even what make and model car a user might own. Through this system Facebook may market news through a democratic lens, hoping to engage users in the political
Social media can connect people like Jordan and his fans, showing that social media is a way for people to express themselves, disability or not. Sure, social media can be a way to connect, but what about the negative connections? Dr. Martyn Wild, a known cyber safety expert, says,“Cyber-bullying is poised to turn into the
By taking photos of our patient, Jerod, and then releasing them to the media we are in violation of many rights and privacies the patient is permitted under federal regulations. This is why one of the major downfalls of technology is security and protection of patient privacy. Using social media or even our phones to take pictures of our patients, such as Jerod from Blue Lizard, creates a permanent record for all to see. This permanent record is likely able to be uprooted and used against you if litigation were taken by the patient in question. Another disadvantage of social media and smartphones is the hugely negative perception it can have on patients who view us using such platforms.
They explain most HIPAA violations are due to lack of employee awareness related to patients’ privacy procedures and a deficiency in communication from management regarding education on proper patient confidentiality processes. They advocate for regular staff trainings on HIPAA laws and instruction on specific privacy weaknesses that affect their organizations’ healthcare information systems. They also explain that healthcare information system privacy training should ensure employees are aware of their responsibilities when it comes to protecting their patients’ confidentiality. They emphasize management should regularly communicate about the importance of HIPAA compliancy to their staff members and make privacy training a top priority within their organizations (Mishra et al., 2014). Staff members’ awareness and agreement through consistent communication and training sessions concerning HIPAA regulations and updates will ensure healthcare centers are adequately protecting the privacy of their patients’ healthcare
By posting a tweet that read, "#WhyIStayed You had Pizza.” DiGiorno diverted attention from a tweet intended to draw attention to domestic abuse and act as an online forum for women who survived abusive relationships. According to DiGIorno’s this was due to the lack of understanding the context of the hashtag on the part of the person controlling the company’s account and purely unintentional. This and similar occurrences lead to the ethical question, “Should a user of social media be held accountable and/or pay the consequences for misuse (due to lack of knowledge or research) of a hashtag?” Using a hashtag for the opposite purpose from the authors original intent is considered hashtag high jacking. When someone creates a large amount of tweets and references a hashtag with negative comments, the objective is most assuredly malicious. Unless the tweets are threatening, very few legal measures can be taken.
In Pisciotta v. Old National Bancorp, the Seventh Circuit analogized the harm stemming from a data breach to the “increased risk” theory of harm that some courts utilize in the toxic tort context. In Pisciotta, a hacker improperly accessed the computer system of a financial services provider, exposing the plaintiffs ' personal information but resulting in no realized financial loss or identity theft. In analyzing whether there had been an injury-in-fact, the court analogized the case at hand to environmental exposure tort cases, which granted plaintiffs standing upon demonstration that the act “increase[d] the risk of future harm that the plaintiff would have otherwise faced, absent the defendant 's actions.” The court granted standing
Google removes RTBF data from the report The new law called Right to be forgotten is designed to protect the privacy of internet users over the web. Several countries are becoming increasingly aware of the privacy issues that users face and taking actions in the form of RTBF law in order to protect the consumers over the web. The date regarding the RTBF request were removed from the Google’s transparency report that has given rise to new concerns among the users regarding their online privacy. After the State curtailed the power of security agencies to collect information from all the users on the web, it was expected that users would be able to protect most of their information available on the web, but in an interesting turn of events Google
Technology affects our lives so much that it got to an extent where technology became a part of funeral memorials. After reading this article, I strongly feel that technology is starting to overrule society because people uses technology in everything they do whether for communication or connection. In the article, Hingston writes “Families can have a memorial online. Visitors can add message and condolences” (Hingston 40). Hingston want her reader to see that people will no longer go to a funeral because they could use technology to send out their condolences without showing up at funeral.
According to an article published by Professional Liability Advocate, “The metadata … compiled into an audit trail … shows the date, time and user who accessed a patient’s chart. It even shows whether the user created or added to an existing record.” If an electronic medical record is altered or amended without indicating that the changes are a late entry, the plaintiff’s attorney will find out. As seen in the example above, this results in negative outcomes for both the case’s defense and the healthcare provider’s
Protegga states that anti-forensic tools, such as Evidence Eliminator, are used to interfere with the digital forensic tools used to recover data. The investigative process of examination or analysis is the important piece of electronic discovery as the recovery of the electronic data is a portion of that process. The anti-forensic tools concentrate on outsmarting the tools used by the digital forensic investigators but do not concentrate on outsmarting the digital forensic investigators
