It is rather ironic that regardless of years past, most security breaches are initiated by exploitation of a weakness in user-authentication (one form or another). Another irony is that the majority of these weaknesses can be eliminated through the implementation of multi-factor authentication, strong password requirements, and self-service password reset. None of these solutions introduces any difficulty for end-users doctors, nurses, administrators, or hospital executives. In fact, recent advancements in password management and multi-factor authentication have made the act of securely logging on even faster and easier.
Wishing you all very safe, happy, and uneventful New Year.
Until next time,
