Protect Your Sensitive Information With The Bug Tag 2 Tag
I served in the Air Force for 8 years, and looking back on that time I realize how antiquated our processes were. I have been out of the service for about 11 years now, so maybe things have changed since then, or at least I hope so. When it came to current technology and utilizing computer systems to manage our day to day operations, we were definitely behind the power curve. I remember using an old outdated alarm system for our intrusion that was probably 50 years old. We had old computers that didn’t really serve our needs efficiently, and a lot of paper filing. Our processes were outdated and made tracking information very tedious, to say the least. When it came to tracking employee training, certifications, education records, employment records etc., everything was in paper form, in a file somewhere. We did not have any electronic records and had to store records in various locations. This held true for many agencies within the Air Force. With the current storage options like clouds, external hard drives, and thumb drives and other information management resources, it is very easy to retain information and have it readily available. Obviously with that being said, new technology also creates concerns about protecting sensitive information. This is a very valid concern in specific industries, like the medical field, where they maintain people’s personal health information. Most Hospitals and doctor’s offices are using technology to maintain health records and to update patient information. No longer are we seeing medical record carts being pushed around between departments. Now we are seeing an increase in computers, tablets and i-Pads being used for record keeping and documentation. So how are these facilities protecting themselves from tablet theft? I would recommend the Alpha Bug Tag 2 to protect yourself from tablet theft, especially if the liability of losing the information is high.
Alpha Bug Tag 2 provides an added level of security that can notify personnel when information is being removed from the premises. The tags are applied to the computer, tablet or I-pad, with an adhesive. The tags are equipped with EAS technology that will sound an audible alarm in the event the item is removed from the premises. It also has a tamper alarm in the event someone tries to remove the tag from the device. EAS antennas are simply added to the entry/exit locations, or in between departments, to prevent tablet theft. These tags are re-useable and can be activated or deactivated by authorized personnel. The Alpha Bug Tag 2 is the perfect way to reduce your liability and to protect sensitive information.
As with anything, the personnel within a medical facility have many tasks to perform. As emergencies crop up and patients need medical care, being aware of patient information security, is not always at the top of the list. Distractions and inattention are not valid excuses for data leaks, and will not reduce a companies’ liability. That is why the Alpha Bug Tag 2 is a great resource for combatting tablet theft. Whether you are in the medical field or some other industry in which data security is a concern this is a great way to protect your information. Simply activating the tag will deter someone from removing the equipment and data from the location and will alert staff in the event a breach occurs. These devices are a cost-efficient means to protect client information, maintain customer trust, and reduce liability. Breaches in trust can severely impact a company and its reputation, so don’t let your guard down, get the security you need today.
