Healthcare Data Breaches on the Rise
It is no secret that cyber thieves love to target the healthcare industry. Recent reports show that healthcare is now the most heavily attacked field, even above the highly reported large-retailer breaches as well as breaches within the financial services sector. Described as the year of the healthcare data breach, 2015 saw 253 healthcare data breaches, with 1 in 3 Americans affected – that is approximately 112 million records stolen with a price tag of $5.6 billion in damages.
