Cited in the reference materials for the HealthCare Information Security and Privacy Practitioner (HCISPP) certification by ISC2 this is a national study of the state of information security in US healthcare. This work guides information security governance in US healthcare and covers current scholarly literature on people management for the purposes of HIPAA compliance. The work also identifies significant deficiencies within NIST 800-66 for healthcare and provides solutions. The book contains ideas from the author's 25 years of experience managing IT which includes 12 years in CIO roles in healthcare and biotechnology. The monograph is written for academics, students and business executives in plain business language with easy to understand charts and tables. All software tools used for the research were free and open source. Doctoral students and researchers should find the book helpful in providing guidance on the numerous methodological decisions an academic researcher has to make while conducting scholarly research. The book provides a completely new way to think about information security. Use security to increase productivity and innovation and a hallmark of distinction for your organization. Before making any investments in information security, read this book and save lots of money and create a better environment in your organization. Technology alone will not solve your problems - you need to involve the people in your entire organization. The author serves as adjunct cybersecurity faculty at Carnegie Mellon University and UMBC and is frequently invited to speak at local, national and international conferences. The author has CISSP, PMP and CPHIMS certifications and is a regular contributor on www.internetevolution.com, radio talk shows, as well as world-wide webinars. Written in plain language for academics, policy makers, and business professionals, this is probably the first doctoral work released exclusively on Amazon. Most doctoral dissertations reside in commercial databases and are not readily available to policy makers. The goal was to provide fast and easy access to anyone from anywhere. Doctoral students will be able to benefit from the strong methodological approach used with every research decision explained and cited (for example when do we know that we have enough survey respondents?). Information security practitioners in any field will be able to use the work to fine tune their information technology governance strategy. Use the work to explain and justify your strategy to business executives in your organization. For a quick review, read Chapter One, Four and Five. Chapter Two is particularly helpful to anyone who needs to understand HIPAA, its associated rules and guidance and the current scholarly literature on the topic.

Evolving threats of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) attack make it imperative to find ways to support global efforts against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and terrorism. This book contains papers presented at the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on CBRN security culture, held in Yerevan, Armenia, in June 2014. The conference was timely in bringing together the various aspects of security culture in the different substantive areas from a CBRN perspective, focusing efforts to advance CBRN security culture in the everyday work of those who must deal with these ever present threats. The primary aim of the conference was to promote the concept of a CBRN security culture which recognizes synergy across the individual disciplines. As a first step in the practical application of this synergistic view, the conference introduced assessment methodologies that could be refined and customized to enhance the role of the human factor in CBRN security. This, we hope, will enable countries to fulfill their international obligations and implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1540. The book reflects the presentations and deliberations of workshop participants and will be of interest to governments, international organizations, researchers and practitioners whose work involves the human dimension of the security of CBRN materials.

All literary enthusiasts will enjoy these poems -- many with deep philosophical messages. Middle school and high school students will enjoy the chronological journey of going through the young mind of someone their own age growing up in a different culture, writing poetry to master the English language -- while earning some pocket money at the same time. Teachers will enjoy sharing many of these poems with their students and asking them to interpret them. This is a preserved collection from 1968-1975 - the author's writings from 7th grade to just after high school - before entering college - and before coming to the United States. The historical or other context of some poems are provided as appropriate. The poems written during and after 1972 helped the author win Best Poet of the Year awards from a local newspaper in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 1973 and 1974. Some are poems, some songs, some just thoughts with a rhythmic pattern. Here is a segment written in 1974: Evening crept into the day And mother's eyes were wet. I saw her move her lips and say, "Isn't it beautiful, to see the sun set?" Away from her, I turned my eyes And looked at the eastern sky, "Isn't it better, to see it rise?" I said, and I heard her cry. - M. Hasib, Muses and Rhymes (2014), p. 103

In the realm of health care, privacy protections are needed to preserve patients' dignity and prevent possible harms. Ten years ago, to address these concerns as well as set guidelines for ethical health research, Congress called for a set of federal standards now known as the HIPAA Privacy Rule. In its 2009 report, Beyond the HIPAA Privacy Rule: Enhancing Privacy, Improving Health Through Research, the Institute of Medicine's Committee on Health Research and the Privacy of Health Information concludes that the HIPAA Privacy Rule does not protect privacy as well as it should, and that it impedes important health research.
