Email is an indispensible part of the workplace, but unscrupulous spammers can cause big problems for you personally and for the hospital. In this week’s podcast, Jason talks with Shelli Crocker, Information Security Officer, who says the volume of spam (unwanted email) and “phishing” schemes (attempts to obtain sensitive information such as passwords) are increasing at Children’s Mercy, as are the incidents of employees responding to these emails. Find out what you can do to avoid these problems, and what action to take if you unwittingly open a potentially harmful email. (Time: 10 minutes)
