    It is unfortunate. However, it is my perception that HIPAA and
    Sarbanes/Oxley were primarily created to regulate human misbehaviors
    (HIPAA: med staff leaking celebrety med data to the National Enquirer,
    SB: Enron/WorldCom/Tyco) and the computer regulations are not for
    computer best practices per se, but rather just the consequent
    requirements for comuter systems to support the goals of HIPAA and SB.

    As such, there is *lots* of room left for regulation of computing
    practices. For good or bad :)
