Healthcare providers — not hackers — leak more of your data

January 1, 2019

New research from Michigan State University and Johns Hopkins University found that more than half of the recent personal health information, or PHI, data breaches were because of medical providers — not because of hackers or external parties.  Employees were taking PHI home or forwarding it to a personal account or device, accessing data without authorization, or even making email mistakes, like sending to the wrong recipients, copying instead of blind copying or sharing unencrypted content. “Hospitals, doctors offices, insurance companies, small physician offices and even pharmacies are making these kinds of errors and putting patients at risk,” the researchers reported.
