Re: Worries
@Marilyn: This is really an excellent illustration of today's data economy.  Companies ask consumers/individuals for their data, and in exchange they get valuable services, goods, etc.; otherwise, you have to pay a premium.  Self-pay at medical centers and not going through or having health insurance can get to be a pretty steep price indeed for protecting one's data.

Re: Worries
I hear you. Good point. On the other hand self-pay would either go to Apple Pay or Google Pay, and I wonder when we will hear the news that they are compromised.

Re: Worries
I agree future is more complex than what we see today. There will be improvement on the systems but security vulnerabilities will still be exploited since there will be more complex tools to do that.

Re: Worries
That is not a bad strategy. I bet China would still figure out a way of cloning the person and identifying the health issue in that way. There is always ways to do that. :--))

Re: Worries
It makes me uncomfortable too. We have been hear more vulnerabilities in government systems than private sector. This by itself is a problematic situation. Why would a small private company spend money on security if government does not.

Overall Security strategy
I think its start from top to down: Strategy. Until companies get hit by themselves they do not think it will happen to them and they do not have any real security strategy to start with.

And if you self-pay, Joe, that's one less database your PII goes in! :-0

Re: Worries
Whoopty,I think you are probably right. This is just the tip of the iceberg. We'll be seeing a lot more of this in the coming months.. and years..

Re: Worries
Better start going to several different doctors and complaining of several different maladies, presenting with different medical histories, to each.  ;)

Of course, then you'd probably have to self-pay.  But then at least China won't really know what your health issues are.  ;)
