I'm not suprised... Every single day that goes by there are new breaking stories of identity theft and breaking codes on previous successful operations such as the Federal Government agencies. No matter how many security controls, someone seems to find a way around the theft procedure. Clearly that indicates that IT security needs work. Hi-tech corporation leaders that produce the equipment are also cooperative to attempt to seek improved technology applications through software and man power. The fact that it happened at Baylor Hospital is simular actions that take place daily. This just shows to me that everyone is asleep at the switch when it comes to business. They disregard all signals. Internal Auditing is an area that offers alot of opportunity for accounting managers to expand and develope new ideas, technology, and control procedures.

WEll of course the crooks are never asleep at the switch
It is a real challenge in such a large system to devise a system that gets things done in a reasonable time but safeguards assets.
I am sure Baylor is re examining how they do things

Here the re imbursement policy for travel is a nightmare of detail that takes time and frustrates everyone, there is a new system but we are all convinced they really want to beat uws out of the money we spend coing smoewhere.


It is sad to say but employers are going to start implementing polygraph tests before hiring these people.


Oh there is more to this story. check out crime blog from the reporter Jennifer Emily. She was in court this morning and the defense attorney Kevin Ross pushed back the plea hearing. Then she found out that at yesterdays plea hearing in Parker County for felony charge where Gary Stephens stole his dad's identity, defense attorney Kevin Ross withdrew as counsel. You gotta wonder what is going on!!! Maybe Kevin Ross took a second look at where his client's money was coming from!!!!!

UPDATE: It's possible that the defense attorney, Kevin Ross, could be withdrawing from representing Stephens. He did just that yesterday in a Parker County case involving Stephens.

Original post: 11:07 a.m.

Gary Stephens was expected to plead guilty this morning to stealing $1.4 million from Baylor hospital.

But the hearing has been canceled.

No one seems to want to talk about the case or why the hearing didn't happen today. Not the prosecutor and not the defense attorney.

Hearings and trials are rescheduled all the time for various reasons. That's likely what will happen here.
