There are too many instances of PHI that exist in healthcare environments.-To be complaint with HIPAA, covered entities must implement technical policies and procedures to allow access only to those persons and business associates that absolutely require access (164.312(a)(1)). -Lessen the numbers of instances of PHI that can be compromised by internal staff and business associates and then harden the remaining, absolutely necessary instances.

it was interesting to read how much of the data stolen by insiders is sold and used to commit financial fraud.

Access control, along with other security measures, remains key to fighting rogue insiders.-- @Cryptodd:twitter-
