It has been reported by the HIPPA Journal that more than 38 million healthcare records were exposed in breaches throughout 2019. October in particular was the month with the highest number of data breaches being formally reported by the healthcare sector. 28 of the incidents were caused by unauthorized access or disclosure, while 18 of them originated from hacking or IT incidents. This shows that the healthcare industry is still a target that is both appealing and easy to attack.
