Cyber Loss: Your data may not be as immune as you think

October 2015

The healthcare industry had more than its fair share of cyber incidents in 2014. Among the biggest health data breaches involved Community Health System, Sutherland Healthcare Solutions, and Touchstone Medical Imaging. 2015 is also shaping up to be another bad year as a spate of cyberattacks were reported for the UCLA Health System, Premera BlueCross BlueShield, Anthem, and many other health institutions.

This infographic, the third in a series of four to be released by Advisen and Hiscox, serves as an eye-opener to the importance of protecting patient data from healthcare data breach. Awareness is the first step to understanding and accepting that measures to mitigate cyber risks are an important factor for a healthcare company to thrive and survive in the digital world.
