Boulder Partner David Zetoony was quoted March 22 in MLex regarding the increase in data breaches for healthcare providers. In the last five years, the percentage of healthcare data breaches due to computer hacking rose from 1.7 percent to 80.7 by both criminal cyber attackers and state-sponsored actors. In the past few years, more regulators have entered the data security field, though the risks of being hacked are more financial than regulatory. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) collects breach data and issues security guidelines in areas such as risk analysis, remote use, and ransomware. “The larger story is that more regulators have entered the fold,” said Zetoony. “[HHS] didn’t exist in this space six or seven years ago, and now they are here.”
