Compliance is a vital piece of the network security puzzle for many businesses, so we thought we’d spotlight the compliance requirements that people are most familiar with in the US – the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act more commonly known as HIPAA. So who better to discuss HIPAA on our podcast, then the cohosts of a podcast about HIPAA. Donna Grindle and David Sims from the Help Me With HIPAA podcast join us to talk HIPAA, highlight compliance challenges related to COVID-19, and to bust some myths about where HIPAA applies and where it doesn’t.

In a cybersecurity headlines segment heavy on bad news, we talk about a big internet outage, a big Twitter hack, and a (possibly) big ransomware attack on Garmin.
