September was riddled with another long list of organizations dealing with breaches caused by insiders, and some organizations failed to discover some of these for years, Protenus’ September Breach Barometer found. Nearly 500,000 patient records were reported breached in September. What’s notable about the insider breaches is the amount of time it took an organization to discover an incident. One of insider breach took the organization nearly six years to discover.
“The longevity of this type of breach reinforces the need to have technology in place that can proactively detect a health data breach,” the report authors wrote. “It’s paramount for healthcare organizations to become more proactive and efficient at detecting these insider breaches.” DataBreaches.net reports that extortion is increasing in every sector and healthcare sector and education sector are prime targets for extortionists due to the sensitivity of the data and the lack of security when compared to other sectors. This is yet another wake-up call for companies who try to bridge the gap between healthcare and technology to make sure cybersecurity is also a part of their business model. Even the most basic security measures would have prevented this data breach.click here.
