WASHINGTON – Washington lawmakers reacted with outrage after a report published by an internal Department of Veterans Affairs watchdog Friday confirmed a computer system at Spokane’s VA hospital has caused nearly 150 cases of harm, while another report found VA leaders in charge of training users on the new system misled investigators.

The Spokesman-Review previously reported the cases of patient harm based on a draft report by the VA Office of Inspector General, an independent oversight body charged with investigating the department, that found a flaw in the system caused delays in patient care when referral orders for follow-up care effectively went missing. The report alleges Cerner Corp., which is developing the system under a $10 billion contract, knew about the issue but did not fix it nor warn VA of the risks it created.

The second report found two senior VA officials gave the Office of Inspector General inaccurate information during a previous investigation into problems with training employees to use the new system. In one case, the officials provided data claiming 89% of employees had passed a proficiency test, when in reality fewer than half that many – just 44% – had shown they could use the Cerner system. The report concluded that while the officials didn’t intentionally mislead investigators, their “lack of diligence” hampered oversight.

Tech giant Oracle acquired Cerner, now known as Oracle Cerner, in a $28.3 billion deal that closed in June. The company faces the task of addressing a wide range of problems with the electronic health record system that have reduced access to care and left VA employees exhausted and demoralized since the system was launched in Spokane in October 2020.

Lawmakers who represent the Inland Northwest cities where the system has been deployed – including Spokane, Wenatchee and Walla Walla – were quick to respond to the reports’ findings on Friday, with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Spokane, calling them “even worse than I suspected.”

“I am appalled by all parties involved in this disaster,” she said in a statement, calling Cerner’s failure to brief VA leaders and train health care providers on the feature that caused referrals to go missing “reprehensible.”

“As for VA leadership, their manipulation of training and system proficiency data to save face has put veteran safety at risk and is morally bankrupt,” McMorris Rodgers said. “This agency has completely lost sight of its mission and done irreparable damage to my trust in their ability to deliver results for Eastern Washington veterans.”

Most of the 149 cases of harm were classified as “minor,” but there were 52 incidents of “moderate” harm – requiring a longer hospital stay or more care – and two cases of “major” harm, defined by the VA as “permanent decrease in the body’s functioning or disfigurement” that “requires surgery or inpatient care.” The draft report included only one case of major harm, in which a veteran known to be at risk of suicide was not scheduled for a follow-up appointment because of the flaw in the system and later called the Veterans Crisis Line threatening to kill himself.

The findings of the second report, including the VA training officials manipulating proficiency test results, were disclosed during a Senate VA Committee hearing in July 2021. VA Press Secretary Terrence Hayes declined to say whether the two officials were still employed by the department, saying in an email, “VA does not share personnel-related details about its employees with the public or press.”

Sen. Patty Murray, a Washington Democrat who sits on the Senate VA Committee, said the Cerner system should not be deployed at other sites “until its glaring errors are resolved.” After The Spokesman-Review gave the VA an opportunity to respond to the draft report revealing harm and ongoing risk to veterans caused by lost referrals, the department announced it would delay the system’s launch in the Puget Sound region from August to March 2023.

“My number one priority here is patient safety and, as the reports make plain, the EHR system is jeopardizing patient safety to the tune of hundreds of orders,” Murray said in a statement.

According to the Office of Inspector General, the Cerner system failed to deliver more than 11,000 orders for requested clinical services between October 2020 and June 2021. While the VA and Oracle Cerner have since taken steps to mitigate the problem, the watchdog office says it has not been fully resolved.

“As I’ve said in the past, officials need to be completely transparent and cannot withhold or slow walk any information to the Inspector General’s office,” Murray said. “So I’m going to carefully review these reports and continue to hold both VA and Oracle Cerner accountable. Our veterans and the hardworking providers on the ground, in Spokane and Walla Walla, are counting on us to get this right, so I won’t stop pressing for solutions until this is fixed.”

Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Sunnyside, represents a Central Washington district that includes clinics in Yakima and Richland that began using the Cerner system in March, when it launched at the Walla Walla VA Medical Center with which they are affiliated.

“The details found in these reports are deeply disturbing,” Newhouse said in a statement. “These reports highlight that the VA, and this administration, intentionally ignored reports showing that their system was putting our veterans’ lives at risk.”

The VA signed a $10 billion contract with Cerner under the Trump administration in 2018, skipping the usual competitive bidding process with the justification that the VA needed to use the same system as the Department of Defense, which had begun rolling out a Cerner system in its facilities earlier that year, beginning at Fairchild Air Force Base outside Spokane. Despite the Biden administration reversing other Trump-era decisions, VA Secretary Denis McDonough has chosen to continue the Cerner project, which is projected to cost at least $21 billion over more than a decade when accounting for necessary infrastructure upgrades.

The top members from both parties on the House and Senate VA committees also released statements about the watchdog reports on Friday, with Rep. Mark Takano of California, the top Democrat on the House panel, saying he was “extremely disappointed” by the VA’s lack of transparency.

“We have been concerned about patient safety and the possibility of patient harm from the very beginning of this project,” Takano said. “We have repeatedly been assured by the highest levels of VA and the program office that no veterans had been harmed by the transition to the Oracle Cerner Millennium product. Today’s report by the VA Office of the Inspector General shows that we had not been given the whole story.”

Rep. Mike Bost of Illinois, the top Republican on the committee, visited VA facilities in Richland and Walla Walla with Newhouse in early July.

“Instead of fixing the issues with the system, VA and Cerner seem much more interested in hiding them,” Bost said. “We expect honesty, at the very least, and a plan to resolve the training and referral issues so they never happen again.”

Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, the top Democrat on the Senate VA Committee, called the reports “unacceptable” and said Oracle Cerner “needs to step up its game and deliver a functioning, quality system that’ll do right by taxpayers.”

Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas – who has been less vocal than other lawmakers in his criticism of Kansas City, Missouri-based Cerner – didn’t mention the company in a statement that pointed blame at the VA.

“The lack of care the department has provided to veterans impacted by the new system is unacceptable,” Moran said. “Today’s reports illustrate patient safety issues that can be traced directly to failures at the highest levels at VA, including the department’s failure to ensure that personnel are candid and open with OIG investigators working to uncover problems in the system.”

The Senate VA Committee will hold a hearing Wednesday to question VA officials and an Oracle executive about the status of the Cerner system’s rollout. Despite VA leaders admitting the system had not shown “adequate reliability” to be used in Seattle and Portland, the department plans to launch it in Boise on Saturday.

Killexams : TikTok Leak Alleges User Data Isn't Private: ‘Everything Is Seen in China’

Photo: Kevin Frayer (Getty Images)

TikTok’s user data drama is back

On Friday Chinese-owned TikTok announced it completed the migration of its American user data to Oracle-owned U.S.-based servers, ostensibly bringing to close a years-long national security debate between the company and the U.S. government. We say “ostensibly” because the announcement came within hours of a new report citing leaked audio from TikTok meetings that allegedly confirms U.S. user data has repeatedly been accessed from China.

Those claims come by way of a Friday BuzzFeed News report which cites leaked audio from more than 80 internal, China-based TikTok meetings. (Chinese tech giant ByteDance owns TikTok). Specifically, BuzzFeed claims the recordings include 14 statements from nine employees who admit engineers had access to U.S. user data for five months between September 2021 and January 2022.

Gizmodo could not independently confirm the contents of the reported leaked audio.

While TikTok executives previously assured U.S. lawmakers an American security team decides who gets the final say on accessing data, the leaked audio allegedly calls into question that commitment. According to BuzzFeed, eight different employees reportedly said they weren’t granted permission to access data on their own and described situations where they had to turn to their China-based colleagues for approval. Fourteen of the recordings allegedly involved conversations with or about Booz Allen Hamilton employees, who were reportedly brought on to assist with data migration efforts, according to one recorded consultant

Summing up the claims during a September 2021 meeting, one member of TikTok’s Trust and Safety department allegedly admitted, “Everything is seen in China.” In another recording, one TikTok data analyst allegedly told a colleague: “I get my instructions from the main office in Beijing.”

TikTok did not immediately respond to Gizmodo’s request for comment and dodged the allegation in its response to BuzzFeed.

“We know we’re among the most scrutinized platforms from a security standpoint, and we aim to remove any doubt about the security of US user data.” a TikTok spokesperson said. “That’s why we hire experts in their fields, continually work to validate our security standards and bring in reputable, independent third parties to test our defenses.”

Hours before the BuzzFeed report went live BuzzFeed released a blog post mentioning its migration of U.S. user data to Oracle servers. Previously, TikTok claims U.S. user data was held on data servers in Virginia, with backup servers in Singapore. Now, according to the company, 100% of U.S. user data will be routed through Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure. The Virginia and Singapore servers will still be used as backups.

“We’re dedicated to earning and maintaining the trust of our community and will continue to work every day to protect our platform and provide a safe, welcoming, and enjoyable experience for our community,” the company wrote.

While TikTok’s efforts to move U.S. user data out of Chinese servers do little to alleviate all the concerns voiced by national security groups, the fact that China-based employees can still allegedly access that data worries some experts. In an interview with BuzzFeed, Adam Segal, the Director of the Digital and Cyberspace Policy Program at the Council on Foreign Relations, said such a situation could potentially result in a Chinese employee sharing that data with a Chinese intelligence agency.

It’s also unclear just how much of an effect the Oracle data hosting will have. According to BuzzFeed, the leaked recordings suggest a portion of U.S. users’ data, including video bios and comments, will still be stored in the previous U.S.-based Virginia data center. Information from that data center, the report alleges, may still be accessible by Chinese-based ByteDance employees.

To say TikTok’s history in the U.S. has been messy is an understatement. Hawkish lawmakers have for years wondered if TikTok could function as a useful espionage tool for nosey Chinese intelligence officials. Those concerns reached a fever pitch several years into the Trump administration when the former president signed an executive order threatening to ban the app unless ByteDance sold the U.S segment of its business to an American firm. A number of U.S. companies, including Walmart and Microsoft, reportedly feigned interest in the explosive app, but Oracle ended up looking like the strongest contender when all was said and done. Oracle and TikTok danced around the deal, opting instead to move forward as a “trusted technology partner.”

The Biden Administration last year acted to cool the temperature around TikTok and reportedly “shelved” talks of a TikTok, Oracle deal. Though Biden stepped back from the Trump era deal, his administration didn’t necessarily abandon the festering national security concerns full-bore. In a Wall Street Journal interview at the time, National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne said the administration was still evaluating how to properly approach TikTok and other Chinese-owned apps.

“We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing U.S. data that addresses the full range of threats we face,” Horne said. “This includes the risk posed by Chinese apps and other software that operate in the U.S. In the coming months, we expect to review specific cases in light of a comprehensive understanding of the risks we face.”

Though Biden had softened the U.S. edges around TikTok, it’s possible the new BuzzFeed report, if verified, could change the temperature.

Gizmodo reached out to the White House for comment but hasn’t heard back.

Killexams : Saudi Arabia’s NEOM turns to Oracle to accelerate digital ambitions No result found, try new keyword!According to Oracle, the project will enable NEOM to reduce database administration costs by up to 80 percent and use its resources to focus on innovations with Oracle Autonomous Database on ... Tue, 05 Jul 2022 02:35:00 -0500 text/html https://www.itp.net/infrastructure/cloud/neom-to-run-entire-it-ecosystem-on-oracle-cloud Killexams : Oracle (ORCL), TikTok Ink Cloud Data Storage Deal in the U.S.

Oracle ORCL and TikTok, a popular China-owned video app, recently announced an agreement per which the latter will store data from users in the United States on Oracle’s servers.

The announcement coincided with a BuzzFeed report that claims TikTok employees in China have controlled and routinely accessed private data from U.S. TikTok users between September 2021 and January 2022.

TikTok has been trying to calm concerns that its Chinese parent or even the local government could gain access to the huge amount of data it has on Americans and other users. TikTok and Oracle have worked for months on a plan to manage the social media company's U.S. user data, including developing procedures for Oracle to audit TikTok's handling of the data.

The Oracle-TikTok deal has been in the works since 2020, when TikTok had announced that Oracle would become a minority owner of the service after a U.S. national security panel backed by President Donald Trump ordered ByteDance to divest TikTok under a national security risk.

By March 2022, ByteDance and Oracle renewed negotiations for Oracle to take over TikTok’s U.S. data storage, this time to allay the Biden administration’s privacy concerns.

Oracle set out to win the TikTok data storage contract, leveraging the U.S.-China antagonism, to expand its flagging data storage business. TikTok has changed the default storage location of U.S. user data and 100% of U.S. user traffic is being routed to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Oracle’s Autonomous Database Strength to Boost Cloud Push

Oracle, currently carrying a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), is making every effort to enhance the functionalities of cloud-based applications, thus encouraging adoption. Shares of the company are down 22.3% year to date compared with the Zacks Computer and Technology sector’s decline of 32.3%. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Oracle’s Cloud services and license support revenues (64% of total revenues) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 3% year over year (up 7% at cc) to $7.61 billion. The upside can be attributed to continued strength in the Fusion, Autonomous Database and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (“OCI”) services.

The next-generation autonomous database launched by Oracle, supported by ML, is witnessing steady traction. Product introductions, including new OCI managed services, are likely to boost growth in this category. The autonomous database in Gen2 public cloud infrastructure is witnessing a healthy uptake.

Oracle’s latest Exadata Cloud@Customer service offering is gaining traction among on-premise customers. The latest wins include Deutsche Bank, the City of Atlanta and the State of Kansas.

Storing data from over 100 million US TikTok users will be a boon for Oracle, which was once one of the world’s biggest data hosts but has struggled to catch up with rivals, Amazon AMZN, Microsoft MSFT and Alphabet GOOGL owned Google after they made early breakthroughs in the cloud computing domain.

Amazon is the leading provider of cloud infrastructure as a service to enterprise customers. The expanding customer base of AWS, driven by its strengthening cloud offerings will continue to aid Amazon's dominance in the global cloud space.

Even more encouraging is the fact that AWS generates much stronger margins than the traditional retail business, which should remain a positive for Amazon’s profitability as it continues to grow in the mix.

Microsoft is benefiting from the momentum in Azure and impressive growth in clientele, triggered by the coronavirus-led work-from-home and online-learning wave and telehealthcare trends. Furthermore, it is well poised to expand the total addressable market through the acquisition of GitHub.

Notaby, Alphabet generated $5.8 billion of revenues from Google Cloud in first-quarter 2022, up 43.8% year over year.

According to Canalys report, in the first quarter of 2022, the top three cloud infrastructure providers were AWS (33% market share), Microsoft Azure (21%) and Google Cloud (8%).

Nevertheless, Oracle’s 12.5% stake in the TikTok Global business, is likely to be a game-changer. It positions the company well to rev up competition in the cloud domain and ensnare more market share in the days ahead.

Killexams : TikTok Says It's Not Sending US Data Abroad

The Chinese video-sharing app TikTok says it’s hosting the US users data in some data centers within the country and is not sending any data abroad. TikTok wants to confirm it’s not a threat to US national security. However, there are still conflicting reports on the relationship between TikTok and the Chinese government.

The conflict between the United States administration and TikTok started during Trump’s presidency. Trump accused some Chinese platforms and manufacturers of collaborating with the Chinese government and spying on US customers. Both Trump and Biden imposed sanctions on Chinese companies.

To settle the arguments, TikTok started storing its US users’ data in a Virginia-based data center. However, the company is now moving to a new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure after forming a partnership with Oracle. The company announced that they have “changed the default storage location of US user data.”

“Today, 100% of US user traffic is being routed to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure,” TikTok noted in its blog post. “We still use our US and Singapore data centers for backup, but as we continue our work we expect to delete US users’ private data from our own data centers and fully pivot to Oracle cloud servers located in the US.”

TikTok also says it has established a new department “with US-based leadership, to solely manage US user data for TikTok.”

The US officials previously expressed their concerns over how TikTok and its parent company ByteDance might handle the data of US customers. The officials are also trying to limit the activities of Chinese tech companies in the US market.

Moving to a new data center and partnering with Oracle is a part of TikTok’s plan to address the concerns. It also wants to prove its good faith. However, there are still many concerns and unsolved questions over how TikTok treats and handles US users’ data. Some believe the Chinese video-sharing app still has some suspicious ties with the Chinese government.

According to a new report by BuzzFeed News, some “China-based employees of ByteDance have repeatedly accessed nonpublic data about US TikTok users.” This information was revealed to BuzzFeed during internal meetings between last September and January 2022. The report contains quotes from some ByteDance employees saying, “engineers in China had access to US data.”

Also, the report claims that TikTok only stores some US users’ sensitive data, like users’ birth dates and phone numbers, in the Oracle servers. But, more data is still available to ByteDance. “ByteDance’s China-based employees could continue to have access to insights about what American TikTok users are interested in, from cat videos to political beliefs,” the report says.

TikTok’s user data drama is back

On Friday Chinese-owned TikTok announced it completed the migration of its American user data to Oracle-owned U.S.-based servers, ostensibly bringing to close a years-long national security debate between the company and the U.S. government. We say “ostensibly” because the announcement came within hours of a new report citing leaked audio from TikTok meetings that allegedly confirms U.S. user data has repeatedly been accessed from China.

Those claims come by way of a Friday BuzzFeed News report which cites leaked audio from more than 80 internal, China-based TikTok meetings. (Chinese tech giant ByteDance owns TikTok). Specifically, BuzzFeed claims the recordings include 14 statements from nine employees who admit engineers had access to U.S. user data for five months between September 2021 and January 2022.

Gizmodo could not independently confirm the contents of the reported leaked audio.

While TikTok executives previously assured U.S. lawmakers an American security team decides who gets the final say on accessing data, the leaked audio allegedly calls into question that commitment. According to BuzzFeed, eight different employees reportedly said they weren’t granted permission to access data on their own and described situations where they had to turn to their China-based colleagues for approval. Fourteen of the recordings allegedly involved conversations with or about Booz Allen Hamilton employees, who were reportedly brought on to assist with data migration efforts, according to one recorded consultant

Summing up the claims during a September 2021 meeting, one member of TikTok’s Trust and Safety department allegedly admitted, “Everything is seen in China.” In another recording, one TikTok data analyst allegedly told a colleague: “I get my instructions from the main office in Beijing.”

TikTok did not immediately respond to Gizmodo’s request for comment and dodged the allegation in its response to BuzzFeed.

“We know we’re among the most scrutinised platforms from a security standpoint, and we aim to remove any doubt about the security of US user data.” a TikTok spokesperson said. “That’s why we hire experts in their fields, continually work to validate our security standards and bring in reputable, independent third parties to test our defences.”

Hours before the BuzzFeed report went live BuzzFeed released a blog post mentioning its migration of U.S. user data to Oracle servers. Previously, TikTok claims U.S. user data was held on data servers in Virginia, with backup servers in Singapore. Now, according to the company, 100% of U.S. user data will be routed through Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure. The Virginia and Singapore servers will still be used as backups.

“We’re dedicated to earning and maintaining the trust of our community and will continue to work every day to protect our platform and provide a safe, welcoming, and enjoyable experience for our community,” the company wrote.

While TikTok’s efforts to move U.S. user data out of Chinese servers do little to alleviate all the concerns voiced by national security groups, the fact that China-based employees can still allegedly access that data worries some experts. In an interview with BuzzFeed, Adam Segal, the Director of the Digital and Cyberspace Policy Program at the Council on Foreign Relations, said such a situation could potentially result in a Chinese employee sharing that data with a Chinese intelligence agency.

It’s also unclear just how much of an effect the Oracle data hosting will have. According to BuzzFeed, the leaked recordings suggest a portion of U.S. users’ data, including video bios and comments, will still be stored in the previous U.S.-based Virginia data centre. Information from that data centre, the report alleges, may still be accessible by Chinese-based ByteDance employees.

To say TikTok’s history in the U.S. has been messy is an understatement. Hawkish lawmakers have for years wondered if TikTok could function as a useful espionage tool for nosey Chinese intelligence officials. Those concerns reached a fever pitch several years into the Trump administration when the former president signed an executive order threatening to ban the app unless ByteDance sold the U.S segment of its business to an American firm. A number of U.S. companies, including Walmart and Microsoft, reportedly feigned interest in the explosive app, but Oracle ended up looking like the strongest contender when all was said and done. Oracle and TikTok danced around the deal, opting instead to move forward as a “trusted technology partner.”

The Biden Administration last year acted to cool the temperature around TikTok and reportedly “shelved” talks of a TikTok, Oracle deal. Though Biden stepped back from the Trump era deal, his administration didn’t necessarily abandon the festering national security concerns full-bore. In a Wall Street Journal interview at the time, National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne said the administration was still evaluating how to properly approach TikTok and other Chinese-owned apps.

“We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing U.S. data that addresses the full range of threats we face,” Horne said. “This includes the risk posed by Chinese apps and other software that operate in the U.S. In the coming months, we expect to review specific cases in light of a comprehensive understanding of the risks we face.”

Though Biden had softened the U.S. edges around TikTok, it’s possible the new BuzzFeed report, if verified, could change the temperature.

Gizmodo reached out to the White House for comment but hasn’t heard back.
