Did you happen to catch Jeff Goldman’s article “91 Percent of Healthcare Organizations Suffered Data Breaches in the Past Two Years” on eSecurityPlanet? Goldman states that, according to a study by the Poneman Institute, “39 percent have experienced two to five data breaches, and 40 percent have suffered more than five.”
According to Goldman the report further states that “Cyber criminals recognize two critical facts of the healthcare industry: 1) healthcare organizations manage a treasure trove of financially lucrative personal information and 2) healthcare organizations do not have the resources, processes, and technologies to prevent and detect attacks and adequately protect patient data.”
