I work at a healthcare facility and we have an outside IT consultant that
wants to create a tunnel to our internal lan to supposedly help with
monitoring and remoting users.  However, I believe this could be a
vialoation of HIPAA and that we would also be risking the networks security,
meaning that anything that may come on to their LAN could cross over to
ours.  Does anyone have insite into this or where I could fine any type of
documentation that would show that this is a possibility?
