Cyber Crime Case Study – Document Bin

This cyber crime case study looks at the consequences of using contractors to handle your company information.

A healthcare organisation was alerted to the fact that a large amount of sensitive information had not been disposed of correctly by their document bin contractors. The Bin company had not locked the bin when it was picked up and patient records were blowing freely through the public streets. The organisation immediately dispatched staff to retrieve what could be recovered. The extent of the breach is still potentially unknown. While the practice may be successful at implicating the document bin company, it will ultimately be the practice that suffers the fallout if unrecovered patient records are sold or misused. Remember, you and your practice are still liable for the mistakes of your third party contractors.
