Healthcare Data Breaches Grow: 94% Breached

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 – Kevin Wilson, Director of Public Relations

Like the corporate enterprise, healthcare data breaches are on the rise. Healthcare organizations are under attack from a variety of devious external sources while facing a litany of challenges from their internal staff, which remains the weakest link in the security chain.

If you need to provision, manage or use any of the following:

  • eHealth records access by members of the public;
  • eHealth records or database access by medical practitioners or authorized professionals;
  • Telemedicine between practitioners and patients;
  • Collaborative systems access for care teams and medical professionals;
  • Managed Security Services for online health industry professionals or the public; or
  • eHealth access portals,

…then your services or your online access can and most likely will be compromised by endpoint devices that are exposed to malware or are already infected.
