ExR CEO Addresses Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology
Saturday September 20, 2003

ExR CEO, Michael Rainer, spoke to the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology at its annual membership meeting held September 20, 2003, at the Savannah Westin Harbor Golf Resort & Spa in Savannah, Georgia. His topic, "Computers, security, and privacy--I can hack your system. Who else can?," covered security and privacy threats to medical practices--how to tell if a practice is vulnerable, how to establish core security and privacy policies for a practice, how to recognize and manage a security incident, and how to establish system controls to protect a practice. With more and more medical information being stored and transferred electronically, medical practices and their affiliates are prime targets for twenty-first century information pirates.
