Internal Threats

I just finished up a class last week with a great group.  Two of the people worked in a sensitive industry.  They were telling me that in their office they can’t use wireless anything, including wireless keyboards and mice. I personally like the idea of a business taking little steps like that to protect information.  I have heard stories about medical offices spelling HIPAA wrong.  If they can’t get the acronym correct do you think they have your personal identifiable information secured? 

I became curious at how serious the industry was about the regulation.  So to take it a step further I did a search for HIPPA Consulting Services.  After telling Google to not spell check me and use the typo as is I returned 141,000 results.   Who handles your security is crucial and the person, or company, needs to be well informed and up to date.
