Windows XP – Upcoming HIPAA Security Concern

Posted by LaSalle Consulting Partners, Inc.

Healthcare security breaches have, in recent years, resulted in costly penalties to covered entities. Data security threats that can lead to these breaches originate from many sources. A new source will be born early next year.

As of April 8, 2014 Microsoft will end support for the Windows XP operating system, initially released in August 2001. Microsoft and security experts are cautioning that Windows XP users will face increased security risks as a result of this change, largely due to the lack of new security updates.

Use Word 2013 to open documents created in earlier versions of Word

used with permission from Microsoft
When you open a document in Microsoft Word 2013 that was created in an earlier version of Word, Compatibility Mode is turned on, and you see Compatibility Mode in the title bar of the document window.

Compatibility Mode makes sure that no new or enhanced features in Word 2013 are available while you work with a document, so that people using earlier versions of Word will have full editing capabilities. Compatibility Mode also preserves the layout of the document.

Please inform everyone to be extra vigilant about not opening attachments from questionable sources. The delivery is very clever and very malicious.

Why Security Updates Are Vital

used with permission from Norton by Symantec

Perhaps it’s become a cliché, all this talk about the pace of technology, and change as a constant, and the need to stay ahead of the curve. But, clichés develop for a reason–usually because there’s truth in them. In the case of computer software, and particularly Internet security software, all the pace-of-technology talk is warranted.

Historically, computer software was a static form of technology. You would buy a program, load it on your machine, and use the software “as is” until the next version came out. However, that model no longer fits.
