SCENARIO
You receive a message from a peer at work that there is a big investigation being conducted at work due to a HIPAA violation and that it involved a celebrity who had been admitted to the hospital. As a case manager for the hospital you are given a company cell phone for hospital use because you are on call three days per week. You have pictures of this celebrity you took the other day. The word is that legal action is being taken against the hospital due to some photos that were sold to the Gossip Gazette. They ask to search your company cell phone.
