2015 is already a year of healthcare data breaches and it’s getting worse every day. Earlier this year hackers broke into Antham Database containing around 78 million records. This month, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield is the latest health care company to discover a
data breach. Now the big question is why hackers are targeting Health Care Data?
Health care data brings significant value, much more than the financial data. Financial data has a limited lifespan. Prescription & Medical records are permanent. Health care data is also a great resource for identity theft.
Health care data has a significant resale value in markets too.
