Is a paradigm shift in the methods of protecting ePHI needed?
Last year alone, over 10 million people in the US were impacted by healthcare industry data breaches. Information housed by covered entities provides fertile ground for hackers because it contains names, birthdates – and most importantly – Social Security numbers, which are key pieces of data used by hackers to open new credit lines, create fake medical records, or apply for loans. It’s clear that covered entities are a target of these cyber criminals.
