ABSTRACT
Providing wireless Internet access to patients and others in your facilities poses the risk of breaches in your computer network. Without specific precautions, Wi-Fi can allow users to access sensitive data. ∎ Wi-Fi offered to patients and visitors must be completely separate from the network. ∎ Security for a system that includes patient data must be extensive. ∎ Wi-Fi networks are popular with patients and visitors.
