It’s possible to lead the world in an industry—medicine in this case—and to simultaneously lag behind when it comes to network security. One large national hospital system faced serious IT challenges. Network investment had been put off to the point of opening critical security vulnerabilities.

Exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals isn’t limited to industries like oil and natural gas. With routine
contact to various cleaning chemicals and other hazards, employees in the hospitality/resort industry
are equally at risk to injury. In fact, studies show that hotel workers have an injury rate 25% higher than all
service workers, with housekeepers experiencing the most injuries. These numbers are due to exposure
to corrosive chemicals in certain cleaning products that have the potential to not only irritate skin, but
to also cause severe burns if splashed on skin or into eyes. It’s a risk for all workers in this industry,
including the staff at Extended Stay America, the largest and most popular extended-stay hotel chain
in North America.
