Healthcare Security Cartoon – Fun Friday

It’s Friday and school is beginning in a lot of places around the country. I know we’re ready for school to start in our house. They moved it up a couple weeks in Las Vegas and so we had a short summer, but we’re excited for the rhythm that school brings.

The last Friday in summer seems the perfect time for a Fun Friday blog post. This cartoon was shared by Fogo Data centers that highlights the always challenging balance between security and convenience.

Do your security policies seem a bit like this picture? Or do you edge on the other side of too convenient and not secure enough?
