Cyber attacks directed to Healthcare industry

Hackers are increasingly targeting healthcare organizations, medical records, protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII):

  • In 2015, PwC’s Health Research Institute’s Annual Report stated that an estimated 85% of large health organizations experienced a data breach in 2014, with 18% of breaches costing more than $1 million to remediate.
  • Approximately 29.3 million patient health records have been compromised in a HIPAA data breach since 2009, according to healthcare IT security firm Redspin.
  • In January 2015, Anthem disclosed that over 80 million health records were stolen from their sytems as a result of asophisticated attack which resulted in a network breach.
  • Earlier in 2016, Bloomberg Business reported that criminal attacks against healthcare providers have more than doubled in the past five years, costing the U.S. healthcare system $6 billion per year.

As the black market for medical records and PHI continues to pay up to $500/patient record, this trend is expected to continue.   

Cybersecurity to protect HIPAA regulated content and PHI 

The HIPAA Security Rule requires healthcare providers to assess the security of their databases, applications, and systems that contain patient data against a list of 75 specific security controls. These controls include specific safeguards to be in place for protecting PHI.

Specifically, the HIPPA Security Rule requires that the HIPAA regulated entities that are mandated to implement the security rule must:

  • Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all e-PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit;
  • Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information;
  • Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures; and
  • Ensure compliance by their workforce.

While the internal systems and firewalls need to be reviewed for security holes and backdoors, and all medical devices updated and patched to ensure the highest possible security, healthcare organizations need to put in place additional measures to protect their networks and web applications from vulnerabilities.
