BYOD

What is the cost of a security breach? For Hospice of North Idaho (HONI), it was $50,000.

According to SC Magazine, the Hayden, Idaho-based hospice paid this amount “to avoid more costly penalties if it would have been found in violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)” as a result of the theft of an unencrypted laptop containing the electronic protected health information (ePHI) of 441 patients from an employee's vehicle.
