COVID-19 has prompted the world to hunker down and work from home. For the average person with a desk job, this doesn’t pose regulatory problems, but for healthcare providers, the use of personal devices and lack of oversight from an organization’s IT department is leaving them and their companies susceptible to violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Enforcers of HIPAA, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announced on March 17 that they would be using “enforcement discretion” regarding HIPAA violations, potentially waiving some penalties for healthcare providers who serve

The most prominent vector affecting the contemporary data landscape is its increasing decentralization. Developments in cloud computing and mobile technologies have largely supported the trend in which modern workforces are becoming more distributed—yet better connected—than they previously were.   The mobile technology space has proved particularly utilitarian in this regard, with a number of innovations predicated on empowering professionals in work environments external to the enterprise. A recent partnership between Web.com Group and Phone.com is furthering this movement by providing a solution to enable employees to leverage the same mobile device with two phone numbers—one for work and one for business.   By relying

With millions of companies across the world still coming to terms with a massive, sudden transition to work-at-home environments, technologies to enable teleworking have been front and center. Many tech companies have reported significant increases in their cloud communications and collaboration solutions, which give workers access to the same communications tools they have at the office.     One of the challenges of remote and mobile workers is the BYOD trend – workers are using their personal mobile devices for business activities. For employees, that can be a disruption, especially when business calls come in during off hours. It can

By Joel Maloff As small businesses adapt to a remote workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic, many risk falling prey to compliance violations without knowing it, particularly in highly regulated sectors, such as healthcare and finance.   Small businesses in both sectors are learning to embrace digital transformation as a resourceful and immediate way to handle the remote telework needs presented by the pandemic. That’s only the first step. They must also educate themselves on regulations and prevent violations from happening while their staff is remote working. With a remote and largely unsupervised workforce that isn’t always mindful of compliance, the

Entrepreneurs are highly motivated. They crave new technology and aren’t afraid to dive headfirst into new projects. I’ve found most entrepreneurs share several common traits: energy, confidence, persuasion, leadership, personal accountability, interpersonal skills and goal orientation. They follow their instincts and embrace risks. Most successful, self-made businesspeople also have magnetic personalities that subliminally attract people to them. But what most distinguishes true entrepreneurs is the drive to forge ahead and continuously innovate. However, some entrepreneurs lack the skills necessary for long-term success, such as patience, organization, executive function, the ability to prioritize and the discipline to stick to their roadmap.
