Ponemon: 89% of surveyed health care orgs breached in last two years; cybercrime top cause

Cost of health care

For the second consecutive year, Ponemon Institute’s annual study on the state of security and privacy in health care found that cyber-crime was the leading cause of data breaches among hospitals and other medical providers.

According to the “Sixth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data,” 50 percent of surveyed health care providers named cyber-criminal attacks as the root cause of a data breach they experienced in the past two years, compared to 45 percent in the 2015 and as little as 20 percent when the survey first debuted in 2011.
