Why Medical Data Is So Valuable To Criminals & Why Everyone Must Be Compliant

Medical DataYour medical information is worth 10 times more than your credit card number on the black market and medical offices don’t have the security systems like banks do to protect it.

The FBI has issued warnings that healthcare organization systems, including medical devices, could be vulnerable to cyberattacks. The FBI stated…"The healthcare industry is not as resilient to cyber intrusions compared to the financial and retail sectors, therefore the possibility of increased cyber intrusions is likely”

HIPAA compliancy is also another area of consideration as it also attributes in some way to the increased value of medical records on the black market. HIPAA is a federal protection act that medical providers must adhere to. HIPAA protects a patient’s information, which also has security safeguards. Any violation by the medical providers or employees could be pursued by a court of law, criminally and civilly. Simply put, under HIPAA, medical providers are federally required to keep patient’s information safe.

Watch our panel of experts as we look at ways to protect your practice, patients and reputation.  (see the panelist bios below)
