The Illusion of Anonymity

Dealing with confidential data on the web

Figure 1.2Real time audit analysis


Many websites that contain confidential financial or personal data have built-in alarms that sound when there is an attempted breech or an unauthorized data access.  This will immediately alert the Webmaster or Security Administrator to the attempted intrusions.

In today’s litigious society, almost every breech of privacy and security is followed by expensive litigation.  On the issue of medical records privacy, the situation is even more fluid and prone to severe security lapses.  HIPAA addresses this problem by mandating the audit requirements of these records and strictly enforcing the requirements by placing stiff penalties for non-compliance.

In cases where personal information has been improperly disclosed, the courts have become very severe.  Litigation against Internet domain owners with ineffective, “home-grown” auditing solutions can be devastating.  In almost every court case, the security and auditing code is found wanting, and the victims often win huge cash judgments. 

Figure 1.3Unified Audit Reporting Interface


Using the Unified Audit Reporting Interface displayed in Figure 1.3, every line of code is put under a magnifying glass and security experts from around the world are called in to judge the quality of the data privacy solution.
