Network security is certainly a top priority for all IT departments today. Healthcare is an industry that has increased financial risk as it relates to cyber attacks. The exposure to potential HIPAA violations looms large for every healthcare organization. Keeping sensitive patient information secure is both important and a constant challenge.
Recently there were a set of security breaches at four Stanford Hospitals. According to Becker's health, four hospitals were hit with security breaches resulting in patients' names, member IDs, dates of birth and coverage information being compromised. You can read the Stanford public statement about the incident here.
