bilmem IT network question -- Win 7 Pro secure? ( HIPPA compliant ? )

This was posted by the guy who runs the Only Cub Cadet forum. True or just a sales pitch?

Quote:
IT Network Question...........

My daughter is an Office Manager in a Doctor's Office. This office gets a periodic inspection from the Gov't (or agent), to see and verify if their office is "HIPA" compliant.

She called me today with this question. They got a visit today, and the computer technician stated, that the present Microsoft WIN7 Pro, which is on all their PC's, is NOT secure enough to be HIPA compliant. That this office needs to upgrade to WIN10 to meet the current HIPA standards. This technician also claims, that Microsoft will soon stop supporting WIN7.

So I am thinking, isn't a PC's security based on a number of things, ie: OS security, Firewalls, Anti-virus, Anti-Spam, and Anti-Malware programs which are all third party add-ons..???

Is this legitimate or sales hype to sell this office all new PC's....???
He also posted that they made the switch from XP to Win 7 Pro 18 months ago

Quote:
The office she works at went from XP to WIN7 just within the last 18 months. She found it odd that their PC's only being 18 months old, were now not good enough.

I am no expert in the HIPA arena, but it sounded like a Sales Pitch to sell some new equipment. That is why I posted here. Seems there are some well experienced IT guys here.

Found this. It looks like HIPA confirms it.

Note that they ended mainstream life cycle support in 2015 but extended support goes through Jan 2020. Link.

Thing is, they can upgrade to Win10 without too much problem, it's not a big deal. I'd recommend they at least try it on one of their PC's and see how it goes.

I work for a major medical organization and have a win 7 pro machine. Yes new machines are 10 but those of us with 7s do not have to upgrade
