Morning everybody. How you doing today? Thanks for jumping on the show. I'm in the neighborhood of the cyber security acronyms personally identifiable information and personal health information on the one-year anniversary of the Equifax credit reporting agencies looking back. It was changed in here is essential part of the story.

Monumental personally identifiable information refers to a broad set name your address your phone number your email address potentially your driver's license your social security number or social insurance number on any government issued ID you the person makes TI or doesn't have a definition for pii here in Canada. We have a definition for pii in the states is kind of hit-or-miss in 2024 doesn't get changed on that has a better definition of pii.

Information that you need to protect so if you are building a system if you're doing security system, if you are a higher level of classification keep that safe, so I'll give you an example. If you are running a public forum and people have account information in that account information.

Let's see if it's billing address. Do you say, you know Mark lives at this place. I'm in this city is address here is that information is pii put me in that system is maybe my posts on these public forms that you need to protect. Sophia is a handy way for us to identify an information.

Is the community has this is so important that we're going to put behind it. Again. This is refers to a class a set of information and obviously related to your house. So you can think digital medical records. Another higher level of education is required. So if you're building a system for a hospital or medical provider you may have information that you may have personally identifiable information about me like my insurance number and then you also probably have personal information of personal health information and it would typically require an even greater level of security.

General classification of data and is that for implies? There are greater precautions needed because all of those attributions and you see that in government work on in law enforcement were quite often break a personal health information are broadly applicable in you very rarely run into any sort of challenges around those categorizations things like an email address because an email address by definition needs to be public identifiable information.

I need to look no further than the US government put against the Lazarus group email addresses to Thai Berry cyberattacks to have North Korean hackers. Even just called because of Equifax anniversary again, check out the Trend Micro blog blog that time I could account for some thoughts for me specifically on the Equifax information personal health information in the way for us to broadly categorized data that requires additional protections on the additional defenses anything to be aware of time.

You should know every point where I really want to make sure that it's personal impact. That's what the PS4 let me know at Market. You are set up for a fantastic day. I will be back on the show most likely on Tuesday, but I'm back in here. So we'll see if Monday is definitely off, but I will talk to you either Tuesday or Wednesday.
