Re: Two Way Street
@Marilyn  So true. And it seems like we never really understand how this stuff works until there's a big data breach. Remember Community Health Systems? I didn't even know that there WERE healthcare providers that were publicly traded companies until CHS had a huge breach....and their stock went up.

Re: Two Way Street
The complexity of heatlhcare networks + IT networks = an exponential increase in the potential for serious damage.

Re: Two Way Street
@RyanSepe  Right. If there's anything recent infosec history has taught us, it's that we cannot, cannot, CANNOT ignore the security posture of our business partners. I don't know that anyone's gotten that quite right yet -- there are certain risks/damages that even the best liability contract can't transfer -- but it's got to be on the list of priorities.

Two Way Street
This is a prime example of getting burnt when the secondary company, in this case BCBS, is not in the crossfire. It is important to perform risk assessments on all business partners to minimize the risk for exfiltration of data. Even by performing the assessment you are not ensuring data security but you are performing due diligence that can be communicated out if needed. As well as, ensuring that the company is protecting the data with the appropriate safeguards.

A functionality that comes to mind is the fundamentals of a VPN. If the company on the other side of the VPN gets breached it decreases the security posture of the company supplying the VPN substantially.
