In a slideshow recently published in IT Business Edge, breaches within healthcare organizations hit an all-time high in 2015. With healthcare records growing in value, cybercriminals have realized they can get a quick payout by hacking this confidential information and selling it to other malicious actors or groups.
Healthcare organizations have become easy targets because they tend to place more emphasis on compliance rather than important security measures. Meeting the letter of the law does not mean you are safe and secure. Imagine if your doctor only did the bare minimum during surgery to make sure you complied with a text book procedure, rather than actually finishing the job.
