White Paper: Combating Cybercrime in the Healthcare Industry
Healthcare security breaches are making headlines with escalating frequency. Consequently, the need to safeguard personal health information (PHI) and other nonpublic data looms more urgent with each passing day.

White Paper: HIPAA Compliance for the Wireless LAN
Wireless hardware, such as access points that are installed around a facility, must facilitate HIPAA compliance. Similarly, wireless software must support the security and management features that the facility requires to enforce HIPAA compliance. Learn how Cisco Meraki products can help customers maintain a HIPAA-compliant network.

Case Study: SickKids Foundation Enhances Fundraising
A large charitable funder of child health research in Canada, SickKids Foundation’s center receives contributions from more than 232,000 doors annually and its aging network and phone system were unable to keep up with its needs.
