Forever in search of new ways to steal personal data about Internet users, identity thieves have found a fertile new source of sensitive information to sell on the black market: online medical records. And the record number of Americans without health insurance has created an exploding market for fraudsters who traffic in insurance packages created with stolen identities. Meanwhile, more hospitals, insurance companies and drugstores are making patient records accessible online. This panel will address the latest security and privacy issues in health IT and what your organization should be prepared for today and in the future. Discover what's new on the horizon, up and coming trends and what your organization should be thinking about.
