Regulation is a cloud that can have a bright silver lining.

Lets suppose that you have old systems ridden with tech debt and propped up by manual processes.
Those powers that be are so used to the situation that the idea that the tech debt or the manual processes are a problem just doesn't register. They are chasing the new shiny ball.

All of a sudden regulation comes along and lifts up the rock and shines a bright light underneath it and reveals the superating horrors squirming underneath!

Too many people have too much access to too much data almost certainly meaning a failed regulatory audit.
All of a sudden you have the impetus and support to fix a load of old problems and simplify the way your systems work. Do this well and not only will you pass regulatory inspection but you will also demonstrate the art of the possible, how good things could be if the prime focus was delivering something maintainable, scalable, flexible.

@David: Wow, nice inspiring post on what I thought was a fairly turgid topic. I feel more motivated to get on with my day's battle against the systems already. I guess you are saying to look for the opportunity in everything - and you know what, you're right, otherwise this job ends up just being a pile of crud.

Then I suggest you find alternate employment. This is a big deal to people whose data you handle.

Steve, thank you for spelling HIPAA correctly, four times no less! (it's the little things) Some people can't even get it right on their resumes...

I apologize for taking your statement as a statement, rather than being hip to your bad music. Carry on.

Yes, its "my bad music" because I chose the title to the article. You aren't doing well this morning on this one so I suggest you let it go.

I can enthusicastically agree with jcrawf02 here on these concerns. I've had my data exposed by people who really didn't care that much and I don't like it one bit. I'm sure accidents happen, mistakes are made, but any emphasis toward security here made by anybody gets my vote.

Security should be part of anybody's job who work in information technology, and not relegated to a few select specialties. I've heard all too many times that securing this or that is "not my job."

What is it exactly that has anyone thinking I don't care about data security? I quoted a line from the song that made up the title of the editorial and nothing more. Next I guess it will be that not only could I care less about security I kick puppies and steal from the elderly.

Cheers
