Security Policies

Instructions

As technology expands into health care, it becomes an integral part of the overall healthcare system. Recently you may have heard news stories involving a breach of patient information at hospitals and other health care organizations. This can be particularly troubling given the type of information health organizations store on each patient and the trust associated with disclosing that information.
