AG settles data breach case for $264,000, issues $400 per Social Security number penalty

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Attorney General reached a settlement(link is external) today regarding a security breach involving the Social Security numbers of 660 Vermont Health Connect users. SAManage USA, Inc, a technology company that provides business-support services, agreed to alter its information security and legal compliance programs and to pay a penalty of $264,000. In July 2016, SAManage’s IT ticketing system allowed an excel spreadsheet containing the 660 social security numbers to be viewed publicly without requiring authentication.A Microsoft Bing web crawler discovered the URL of the spreadsheet and incorporated it into its search results, where it was found by a Vermonter, who reported the breach to the Attorney General. The Attorney General then investigated the SAManage breach. It appeared that due to a miscommunication within the company, this breach would have gone unreported were it not for the Attorney General’s intervention.“My office takes data breach very seriously,” said Attorney General T.J. Donovan. “Vermonters are increasingly aware of the dangers of mishandling Social Security numbers, and we will continue to protect them by enforcing our data breach and consumer protection laws,” he said. “This is an appropriate penalty given the given the specific facts of this incident and that the company fully cooperated with our investigation.” More information about the Attorney General Donovan’s efforts to protect consumers and address data breaches can be found at http://ago.vermont.gov/focus/consumer-info/privacy-and-data-security1.php(link is external).Published: Sep 29, 2017last_img read more

CDC: Flu rises sharply, now widespread in 36 states

first_imgFlu activity rose sharply last week, with 36 states now reporting widespread circulation and other markers such as clinic visits for flu and positive respiratory specimens also showing steep increases, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today in its latest update.The new report underscores a warning that came from the CDC 2 days ago about steadily climbing flu dominated by H3N2, a subtype known for its heavy impact, especially on seniors and young children. Between that and known gaps in H3N2 protection in seasonal flu vaccines, the CDC also reminded providers that antiviral drugs are an important second line of defense in treating flu.Closer look at rising US flu markersIn its report today, the CDC said since its last report, the number of states reporting widespread flu activity—encompassing a broad swath of the country—jumped from 23 to 36, and the proportion of respiratory samples testing positive for flu at clinical labs rose from 14% to 22.4%.Nationally, the percentage of clinic visits for flu—which climbed from 3.5% to 5%—has been at or above the national baseline for 5 weeks so far this season, the CDC said, adding that in recent seasons, flu has been at those levels for an average of 13 weeks.In its chart comparing clinic visits this year to the past five seasons, the pattern seems to be closely following the moderate-to-severe 2014-2015 season, which was also dominated by H3N2.High flulike illness activity, another marker of clinic visits for flu, was reported in 21 states, with regional activity reported by 13 states and Puerto Rico.Flu hospitalizations are rising steadily, and last week were at an overall rate of 8.7 hospitalizations per 100,000 population. The levels were much higher in seniors, at 35.8 per 100,000 population.Three more pediatric flu deaths were reported, raising the total to 12 this season. One was from an unsubtyped influenza A virus, while the other two were linked to influenza B.Overall deaths from pneumonia and flu, an indicator that typically lags other flu markers, are below the seasonal baseline.In tests last week at public health laboratories, 89% of positive flu specimens were influenza A and 11% were influenza B. Of the subtyped A viruses, 88.1% were H3N2. Analysis of a subset of H3N2 viruses shows extensive genetic diversity with many clades and subclades circulating, most of them similar to a cell-propagated reference virus that is a component of Northern Hemisphere flu vaccines.Flu in Canada and EuropeCanada, which has also been experiencing early flu activity, reported a notable increase in flu outbreaks and hospitalizations in the most recent update from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), covering the week ending Dec 16.Though H3N2 is the dominant strain, Canada is seeing a substantially greater number of influenza B illnesses for this time of year compared to past seasons. Levels of hospitalizations and deaths are highest in seniors, and since early November, surveillance has reported above-average hospitalizations for flu among children.In Europe, where flu activity began more slowly, disease levels are on the rise in western, northern, and southern Europe, according to a joint report covering the week ending Dec 24 from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regional office for Europe. Both influenza A and influenza B viruses are circulating, with mixed patterns detected across the region, including higher proportions of influenza B than influenza A and more 2009 H1N1 than H3N2. An analysis of a small number of H3N2 viruses suggests that the circulating viruses belong to the vaccine virus clade.At sentinel healthcare sites, the percentage of respiratory specimens that tested positive for flu rose from 28% to 32% compared to the previous week.See also:Dec 29 CDC FluView updateDec 29 CDC situation updateDec 27 CIDRAP News story “Jump in H3N2 flu prompts CDC warning, antiviral reminder”Dec 22 PHAC updateDec 29 Flu News Europe reportlast_img read more

The major barrier will be safely accessing the affected population.”According to an African media report on Monday, the outbreak began in early July, and symptoms included fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and nose bleeds.

Call to Action for CARICOM Education Ministers: COVID-19 and Education

first_imgIt is evident, that a critical paradigm shift in educational provision is needed; we need to ensure educational resilience through digital transformation. I take this opportunity as the Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Antigua and Barbuda and Chair of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD) to call my colleague Ministers to action.Extract from Statement by Chair of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD) – EducationRead full statement below: COVID-19 has exposed even more the pestering inequalities of educational provision in many of our Member States (MS). This also challenges our ability to deliver universal quality education to our citizens. There is now a greater urgency to secure the continued access and participation of children, youth and adults who live with special education needs and disabilities. Those families who are extremely poor or live in remote geographical locations (including the teachers who live in these areas) are at this time unable to fully access the educational accommodations that are being put in place by governments as interim responses to the need for educational provision at a distance over an undeclared, yet protracted period of time. The uncertainty of when the pandemic will come to an end is facilitating deepened uncertainties in educational provision. Chairman of COHSOD, Hon. Michael Browne, Antigua and Barbuda More deaths from COVID-19 recorded in CARICOM countries,… STATEMENT FROM THE CHAIR OF COHSOD-EDUCATION CMO says Saint Lucia at critical stage of COVID-19 outbreak You may be interested in… St. Lucia records more cases of COVID Oct 15, 2020 COVID-19 AND EDUCATION The closure of schools has impacted the earning capacity and participation rates of caregivers, in particular single parents and those who are self-employed; challenged the health security of children who rely on the provision of school meals; increased the risk of exposure to incidents of physical, emotional and sexual abuse and hampered the successful integration of at-risk youth in continuing education. Contribute to a regional capacity to respond through knowledge and resource sharing that ensures that we respond and recover at equitable rates as one CARICOM.Articulate national policies related to the provision of education in periods of crisis, ensuring the protection of the most vulnerable, including where relevant, members of the migrant population.Commit to a digital transformation that guarantees the resilience of the educational system. This is an investment where educational leaders, teachers and students are enabled to engage in quality learning and assessment using fully online platforms; thus aiding in the rapid recovery from the effects of COVID-19.Strengthen public private partnerships with members of industry to enable a smoother transition between pre-, during- and post-COVID-19 realities. Safeguarding the future of our national and regional workforce and entrepreneurial sectors.  Ensure that the information related to COVID-19 is disseminated in such a manner that allows teachers, students and families with cognitive, physical and psycho-social learning differences, access to factual information that supports their ability to advocate for and protect themselves and their families in this crisis.Recognise and cater for the mental health impact of COVID- 19 on teachers and learners, paying attention to the ways in which this too can serve to disrupt learning. Interventions must be designed that support the emotional wellbeing of learners, teachers and parents.   With a particular reference to COVID-19 and education, the response required relates to decisions to ensure the continuity of education on the one hand, and enabling a swift recovery on the other. Now more than ever, the Region has become acutely aware of the essential roles played by schools and teachers in maintaining the safety and security of children and vulnerable youth. COVID-19 has amplified our awareness of the need for increased technological innovation in the operationalisation and assessment of educational systems and has triggered the need for a response to education for all, in periods of crisis. Oct 16, 2020center_img A Call to Action- COVID19 and Education CARICOM We do not know the length of this road, but we do know that we are journeying together. Let us adhere to the national and regional safety protocols designed to ensure that we remain in the best of health to continue to serve our children, teachers and communities who stand with us in service. We are all obligated to protect our CARICOM legacy that is the health, well-being and educational excellence of the children and youth of our Region.  Share this:PrintTwitterFacebookLinkedInLike this:Like Loading… I take this opportunity as the Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Antigua and Barbuda and Chair of the Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD) to call my colleague Ministers to action. To aid in a swift recovery from COVID-19, Ministries with responsibility for Education across the CARICOM Region must: Oct 16, 2020 Our Higher Education sector appears most ready to respond to the provision of technology enabled education in a crisis, with faculty and students of some institutions more ready to continue their educational careers in an online environment. However, attention must be given to TVET institutions, and Community Colleges, to ensure that they too have the capacity and infrastructure to contribute to the normalcy of post-secondary education provision. The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) has been a regional vanguard in the area of E-Testing and has demonstrated their solidarity with the region through a proposal for a revised examinations strategy that aims to ensure the integrity of the examinations process, produce valid grades and sustain educational progression across levels of learning.  Teachers have also been affected. They are now being called to execute pedagogical innovation that many feel not prepared or trained for; challenging the quality of educational delivery and the efficacy of teachers. COVID-19 is rehearsing often aired propositions on the need for education systems to become 21st Century ready; it is challenging expectations for continuing teacher professional development and creating new conditions of labour for the teaching force, made of up mostly of women, who also fulfil obligations as caregivers. Six Eastern Caribbean countries deemed safe for travel – CDC It is evident, that a critical paradigm shift in educational provision is needed; we need to ensure educational resilience through digital transformation. This is the call that is made through the UNESCO SDG 2030 Agenda and reflected in the CARICOM Human Resource Development 2030 Strategy, through the design and implementation of a Caribbean New School Model. Responding to this call can no longer be delayed by the vagaries of financial and political positioning. If the region is to acquire the economic and social resiliency required for educational provision it must become innovative, mediated by ICTs and driven by a competency-based approach. The COVID 19 Pandemic has been characterised by many as the unseen enemy moving swiftly across the globe. To date, at the international level, it has affected approximately 1.5 billion students with run on impacts for teachers and caregivers. Within the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) it has disrupted the education and careers of over five million students and two hundred thousand teachers across the Basic Education, Skills for Lifelong Learning and Tertiary Education Sectors, including the provision of special education. In the CARICOM Region, a whole of Government approach has been taken to managing the impact of COVID-19 at the national level. The Region is to be applauded for its swift and coordinated responses to COVID-19, putting in place the health, education, social, economic and security protocols needed to reduce the impact on the social sustainability and economic resilience of the region.  Oct 15, 2020 As it relates to the education sector our readiness to respond to the provision of quality basic education at a distance, using online synchronous and asynchronous approaches has been prefigured by the 21st Century readiness of our educational infrastructure. Educational resilience requires an urgent digital transformation. Within MS educational continuity and stability have been managed through interventions that range from the creation of learning packets that are delivered to children, to the creation of educational television series facilitated by particular experts, to the use of learning platforms where both teachers and students can interact via synchronous or asynchronous modes. Out of an abundance of concern and using the whole of government approach, MS have also ensured the provision of welfare relief to students and their families.

He was said to have enjoyed the support of military generals and war veterans. His critics viewed him as ruthless because he was in charge of state security when Mugabe unleashed a North Korean-trained brigade to crush dissent in western Zimbabwe in the 1980s.
