Can your health organization afford a $49,246 laptop?

Here's some information about an upcoming webinar sponsored by Absolute Software and Lenovo:

It’s not just about your mobile devices. It's about your business – your reputation. More than 12,000 laptops are stolen every week from airports alone. What if one of those was from your organization? Would your patient data be safe?

Clinicians and hospital staff need to be mobile, but this mobility can put an organization at a dramatically increased risk of a data breach. Keeping data secure in a mobile environment is not only a challenge, but a critical requirement within HITECH and HIPAA rules. Unauthorized access to patient data or hospital systems resulting from a stolen or lost laptop could cause severe economic and legal consequences. The average cost to resolve a data breach in 2009 was a sobering $6.75M2. And the rate at which customers “jump ship” is higher for healthcare organizations – even higher than for financial organizations. It’s all about your reputation.

Join us on January 13 to learn how your organization can track devices, remotely and permanently delete data, and securely lock out thieves, using Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) and Absolute Software that come standard with all Lenovo Thinkpad Series laptops.

Attend this webinar to learn these key trends and solutions: 

• Employing new technology that offers rapid lockdown and rapid recovery to keep you in compliance with healthcare data security laws
• Keeping medical records at your fingertips without data security concerns
• Rules governing the protection of healthcare data and the consequences of noncompliance
• Using asset tracking and management technology to know sooner when a computer may be out of your control
• Other security best practices in the healthcare field

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from industry thought leaders on how the latest anti-theft technology can offer you the tools you need to secure confidential data on laptop PCs, even when they are off-site or off-network, and comply with new federal and state regulations while maintaining a mobile workforce.
