Go to Jail: 13 months in jail for a computer specialist with an Atlanta physician practice who left the practice, joined a new practice, and hacked into the old practice to steal patient data and use it for direct-mail soliciations for his new employer. He also deleted the information off of his old employer's computers.

This shows the need for good employee exit policies and access termination protocols, especially if it's possible to access your system from the outside.
