Healthcare data breaches: The consequences

The Cost of a Data Breach in Healthcare: Settlements Involving Lost or Stolen Devices

Cover

Traditionally, financial data was considered the most attractive target for cybercriminals – not anymore.

Protected Health Information (PHI) is becoming an increasingly lucrative target. In fact, Forrester claims a single health record is worth $20.00 on the black market while a complete patient dossier can sell for up to $500.00.

This white paper explores the trends and consequences regarding healthcare data breaches and provides 7 key takeaways for healthcare organizations, which includes:

  • Encrypt PHI across mobile devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones)
  • Anticipate & prepare for involvement with the HHS Office for Civil Rights
  • Regularly review HIPAA privacy requirements to ensure you’re up to date
