Re: Identifying unhappy employees
That's very interesting, @GoSmartyJones. To be honest, that's an aspect I had not considered -- educating employees about the penalties they will face if they do leak or steal data. It's definitely a natural fit with other best practices: Teaching new and existing employees how to safeguard information, both technologically and from social engineering, and the importance of maintaining secure patient records, emails, images, etc. I wonder, do you have any examples you can please share that demonstrate how merely taking that extra step and telling healthcare workers about the fines and jail time involved led to decreased breaches?
This step is something healthcare organizations can do almost immediately. Sadly, there's a ton of data freely available on fines and jail sentences healthcare employees have incurred because they've stolen or leaded patient data. And no doubt government organizations will be glad to share other info to encourage medical pros to be more proactive in their security efforts. Love this idea!
