Re: Why encrypt when the encryption isn't the issue?
@GonzSTL: Indeed, so so SO many organizations -- Anthem, it would seem, apparently included -- have implemented "M&M Security": Hard on the outside, soft in the middle.

You have to think about what happens after an attacker gets in.  If it's just easy sailing from there, that's a problem.

Re: Why encrypt when the encryption isn't the issue?
Very much agree. Incorporating a defense in depth approach ensures that even if you are not able to incorporate everything in the SANS 20, that you will still have a more rigid security posture. Whatever the justifications are for not incorporating encryption, I can say from experience that most healthcare organizations are way behind.

Re: Why encrypt when the encryption isn't the issue?
I've said this before, and I'll say it again. Implement a rigid and well defined security strategy. That does not mean simply throw money at the thing. Implement SANS Critical Security Control # 17: Data Protection. Fine, don't encrypt your data; I get the arguments for and against that, but you had better have a good data loss protection strategy in place to prevent the exfiltration of your data, whether or not you encrypt your data. Oh, and while you're at it, implement the 19 other controls, and do it properly, like you really mean it. When you finish, you may not have perfect IT security, but it will be pretty darn difficult for someone to steal your precious data.

Why encrypt when the encryption isn't the issue?
Several well-written defenses of Anthem for not encrypting have arisen.
