True, IT is not a police force, but if you look closely at the HIPAA Security Rule it says the HIPAA Security Officer is a Law Enforcement Officer. The HIPAA Security Office is often an IT person. Our policies clearly state that employees have no expectation of privacy and that ALL electronic communications can and will be monitored.
