Re: Healthcare security
That's a great point. Hackers are less likely to be the culprits. It's much more likely to be employees, accidentally or on purpose. And as we've seen from breaches in both healthcare and other industries, all too often they occur because simple steps are not taken. Automating processes really helps; it eliminates the need for someone to remember to do something, always a good thing!

Healthcare security
The only thing worse than hackers is a badly organised patient information management system. Not everytime are hackers responsible. When healthcare is being talked about, we are assuming that the hospital (or chain of hospitals) have a central server which allocates files to patient information. What happens mostly is that this kind of networking does not align up with efficient management and the patient information (and not the case file and treatments offered) stays in the system long after the patient has been discharged.
