Your Healthcare Data is Vulnerable to Cyber Attack

A recent article published in the Insurance Journal , written by Jim Finkle, states that the FBI believes the security measures taken by the healthcare industry are weaker than those by other industries and has been privately sending notices to healthcare providers.

Interestingly, the article also states that the value of health information on the black market is as much as 20 times that of a stolen credit card number. The article claims that one reason for this increased value is because these health records can contain information used to access not only bank accounts but also gain access to pharmaceuticals. In addition, it states that victims also may not notice the theft for some time.

The article suggests several weak points in technology such as routers, firewalls, video conferencing equipment, and radiology software are to blame.
