Don't get Caught!
Alberta Health Services (AHS) has been in the (unhappy) informatics news, having experienced a recent 'phishing' attack that targeted administrative staff. Thanks to e-security vigilance, the attempt was detected early and no harm came to the organization.
This is a strong reminder to learn and use basic information self defence, or to push a different metaphor... defensive driving on the health information highway.
