I’m a believer in using a PCI network card for the WAN port in an attempt to keep any harmful external influence(s) (i.e., sneak current, or high voltage, etc.) which might make its way into the appliance several components from the MB. I just think an added internal NIC is easier to replace then dealing with the ramifications of a bad NIC on the board itself...I’ve experienced damaged NIC’s on the MB even with a APC ProtectNet surge protector properly connected/grounded. Your thoughts?

The enterprise is so screwed, short of complete lockdown a breach in even the simplest terms is unavoidable...

"While technology undoubtedly has made accessing medical information much easier and faster, it also has also provided an increased potential for medical data breaches especially as health personnel begin to use unsecure mobile devices for personal and work use. With an increase in health care employees using their own tablets and smartphones in the workplace, many healthcare companies are considering adopting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. However, many companies have failed to implement mobile data breach protection, breaking the HIPAA Security Rule which requires healthcare companies to perform a risk analysis of the processes by which they protect the confidentiality of electronic patient health information maintained by their organization."

While the monitoring system appears similar to those used by many companies to investigate compromises using forensic data, critics have worried that it undermines citizens' civil rights."
