If the Doctor's office computerized records have been compromised by a hacker, resulting in damages to patients is:
A - The doctor liable if he didn't have proper firewall or other protections.
B - The doctor is not liable.
C - The doctor is liable
D - The risk manager, but not the doctor is liable.
I would say A, but it may ultimately be up to a jury. Do doctors have risk managers? If they did, the Doctor should do the suing of that "manager" if and after losing the case.
