Grilling Safety
 

Grilling Safety

Are you prepared to grill safely?

Post Date: 06/14/2019

Charcoal Grill

Outdoor grilling is popular throughout the year. It’s important to be careful around the grill to prevent fires, burns, and property damage.

To keep you and your family safe while grilling, follow these guidelines:

  • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
  • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets away at least three feet away from the grill area.
  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.

For more information, please visit the National Fire Protection Association’s website at www.nfpa.org/grilling.

Quest Diagnostics Data Breach Affects Nearly 12 Million @QuestDX
 

Quest Diagnostics data breach affects nearly 12 million patients/accounts. Financial and personal info compromised, but “no proof” or admission that health lab records compromised. Now the question is what do these criminals do with this data. But some reports are that medical records have been exposed in the data breach.

How much will this breach cost Quest? Will they be fined under HIPPA laws? If so it could run into the billions in fines if imposed.

This is the news release posted on the Quest page:

SECAUCUS, N.J., June 03, 2019 — American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), a billing collections service provider, has informed Quest Diagnostics that an unauthorized user had access to AMCA’s system containing personal information AMCA received from various entities, including from Quest. AMCA provides billing collections services to Optum360, which in turn is a Quest contractor. Quest and Optum360 are working with forensic experts to investigate the matter.

AMCA first notified Quest and Optum360 on May 14, 2019 of potential unauthorized activity on AMCA’s web payment page. On May 31, 2019, AMCA notified Quest and Optum360 that the data on AMCA’s affected system included information regarding approximately 11.9 million Quest patients. AMCA believes this information includes personal information, including certain financial data, Social Security numbers, and medical information, but not laboratory test results.

AMCA has not yet provided Quest or Optum360 detailed or complete information about the AMCA data security incident, including which information of which individuals may have been affected.  And Quest has not been able to verify the accuracy of the information received from AMCA.

Quest is taking this matter very seriously and is committed to the privacy and security of our patients’ personal information. Since learning of the AMCA data security incident, we have suspended sending collection requests to AMCA.

Quest will be working with Optum360 to ensure that Quest patients are appropriately notified consistent with the law.

We are committed to keeping our patients, health care providers, and all relevant parties informed as we learn more.

Apple iOS Profile Added Via Link Email – How to Remove
 

If you are like some people who have recently been on a website and have opted in to some emails and as a result now have a completely new account and profile added to your iPhone or iPad.

It seems that many people are being affected by this. The real question is what else is being affected by this profile that is being added to your device.

According to Apple.

You might be asked to install a configuration profile that was sent to you in an email, or one that is downloaded from a webpage. You’re asked for permission to install the profile and, when you open the file, information about what it contains is displayed. You can see the profiles you have installed in Settings

 > General > Profiles & Device Management. If you delete a profile, all of the settings, apps, and data associated with the profile are also deleted.
