Healthcare - the next security disaster

I recently wrote a piece here on IT Knowledge Exchange talking about healthcare data breaches. I wonder what people think about healthcare as the next big target for hackers worldwide and if there's cause for concern. I think tech and finance have had their comeuppance and retail was next. But now is our healthcare system at risk? Jeff Cutler Profile: Jeff Cutler

    When you are managing a data center, the best tools are always going to be recording tools, no matter what the data center processes. Keep track of calls, customer service, talk times, up times and down times. If you can get stats on it, it is something that you need to know. Processing all of that information takes time and a steady hand and eye, but that information needs to be there to help you get a picture of what is going on.
    The best way for you to keep track of what is going on in your data center is simply to have your electronic eyes on the prize.
