Fourth Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy and Data Security

March 12, 2014, 6:00 am

Today we are releasing our Fourth Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy and Data Security. We hope you will read the report sponsored by ID Experts that reveals some fascinating trends. Specifically, criminal attacks on healthcare systems have risen a startling 100 percent since we first conducted the study in 2010. This year, we found the number and size of data breaches has declined somewhat. Employee negligence is a major risk and is being fueled by BYOD. Giving healthcare organizations major headaches are: risks to patient data caused by the Affordable Care Act, exchange of patient health information with Accountable Care Organizations and lack of trust in business associates privacy and security practices.
