Is your HIPAA compliance program and breach reporting up to date?
Over 94% of providers have experienced some form of data breach, and over 50% have had 5 or more data breaches. From phishing campaigns and PHI-containing emails sent to the wrong recipients to unencrypted devices and servers left publicly accessible, the total number of breaches in 2019 outnumbered the previous year by more than 33%, according to research from Risk Based Security.
