Information security is important in all aspects within an organization. This is, in my opinion, especially so when looking at the healthcare industry. There must be protocols in place to ensure patient information or sensitive information is protected from hackers. Confidentiality and security are two aspects of protecting sensitive information. While confidentiality safeguards information; security is the procedural and technical measures that are required to prevent unauthorized access to vital information. In 2014, U.S. hospital operator Community Health Systems (CHS) stated that hackers gained access to its computer network. With this breach these unauthorized users was able to obtain 4.5 million patient’s personal data. The breach was revealed in a filing by CHS with the Securities and Exchange Commission (The State of Security).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
