Chinese tech companies still can’t stop medical data leaks

Eliza Gkritsi follows up on something previously reported on this site based on research by WizCase that they had shared with this site. WizCase subsequently updated their own post, here.

Two security flaws at Chinese medical device operators put over 24 million patient records at risk in October. These medical data leaks reveal how cybersecurity practices and regulations lag behind as China’s healthtech industry plows ahead.

Cybersecurity monitoring site WizCase first noticed the leaks, which came from two separate sources. TechNode reviewed screenshots from the reported leaks and sought out further details from Dutch cybersecurity researcher Victor Gevers.

Read more on TechNode, and look for another report from WizCase soon, as they recently contacted me again with more findings of leaks involving health data.
