Seeing The Signs

The security community has been warning about the vulnerabilities facing the information security of the healthcare community for some time now. A necessity of receiving appropriate medical coverage and care is providing a very large amount of personal information. And with laws that require an entire nation to be medically ensured, that creates a rather large pool of data. It has finally happened. A prescription information network in Canada has been compromised within the past few weeks. The investigation as to how the breach occurred is ongoing. Hopefully the damage was not devastating, and people will learn from this incident. Don’t wait to be a victim yourself and learn how to secure your information properly.
