In 2019, the healthcare field is a top target for ransomware and other cyber-attacks. In 2018, healthcare organizations, on average, spent $1.4 Million to recover from cyber attacks (Radware). Eight of those breaches exposed over 500,000 healthcare records, and three of those breaches revealed over a million. Healthcare was the second-most attacked industry after the government sector.
The most recent healthcare data breach reports are listed below.
Many of the cybersecurity breaches could have been avoided if a HIPAA risk assessment had identified a vulnerability that was later exploited to gain access to protected health information (PHI).
