Cybersecurity Attacks Leading Large Health Data Breach Cause

Cybersecurity Attacks Leading Large Health Data Breach Cause

The past summer included several large health data breaches, with the majority of them stemming from cybersecurity attacks and unauthorized online access.

While the summer of 2016 is quickly coming to an end, covered entities and their business associates cannot ease up on their data security measures. If the past three months have been any indication, large health data breaches are not about to cease anytime soon.

 

Between June 1, 2016 and August 31, 2016, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) shows that the majority of reported incidents were classified as unauthorized access or disclosure, with 28 cases being listed as such. Hacking incidents were a close second, with 25 reported incidents in the same time frame.
