Hacking dominated health data breaches in July – Protenus

Protenus has released its July Breach Barometer, with data supplied by DataBreaches.net. Here’s a snippet from their report:

July is the first month in 2017 to have hacking incidents outweigh insider breaches to patient data in both frequency and number of affected patient records.  While hacking accounted for almost half of total breach incidents this month, the severity and potential damage of insider threats to patient data should not be overlooked, with one incident going undetected for 14 years.
