On Demand Webinar: Have electronic health records made America more vulnerable?
Our latest webinar featured Dr. Mansur Hasib, CISSP, PMP, CPHIMS, in a discussion on electronic health records and the modern cyber criminal. Here’s a quick excerpt:
Electronic health records are far more valuable to the modern cyber criminal. For the hacker, they fetch more value over a much longer period of time. For the victim – many who are still children — the repercussions could last decades! And from what we have seen during the spate of sensational breaches in the last few months, they appear to be far easier to obtain. In early 2014 Community Health Systems yielded over 4.5 million records. Recently, Anthem yielded 80 million! Why is healthcare so vulnerable? Why is healthcare data more important than credit card information? And what can consumers and health care organizations do about it?
