Win10 violates HIPAA?

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, designed to make health insurance more stable, inter alia. Clearly a cornerstone of it, is confidentiality of data.

Win10 violates that confidentiality, and that is one of my side responsibilities to my clients, to warn them when such threats occur. That is a primary reason why I started frankforum, as this fact is a) not yet adjudicated, but b) when adjudicated, it will be too late for people who've already deployed anything (including Win10) covered under hitlerian aka.ms/msa .

BY CONTRACT, there's a violation. I don't need to see actual use, for the RIGHT of MSFT to slurp all your private data, immediately puts the Sword of Damocles over any healthcare provider and even any transcriber.

What I didn't know and you can to see, is whether TESTS have been done for the potential violation of HIPAA. Apparently the tests have begun.

Collateral laws of course exist for other types of confidential data. No attorney, accountant, broker, can afford to use Win10 or any of the 'services' covered under aka.ms/msa (Windows 10 incorporates aka.ms/msa wholly by reference in its paragraph 14).

So ANY THIRD PARTY CAN SUE YOU. More on this and related problems are in the main thread, . This thread is started to fork from it, since it focuses on HIPAA and testing Win10 and the 'services' for violation.

Wow. I hadn't even considered HIPAA. This MS 10 really is bad business.
