US Healthcare Data Breaches on the Rise

According to a new article reporting in Infosecurity Magazine, data breaches are on the rise at US healthcare institutions.  Some important highlights:

  • 70% have suffered a breach
  • 54% are using three or more infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) vendors
  • 55% of respondents claimed they now feel “very” or “extremely” vulnerable to data breaches
  • 33% are using SaaS (software-as-a-service)

Many of the integrations to SaaS, third-party vendors, and cloud applications are being shipped large blocks of personally identifiable information (PII) that greatly increases the number of attacks that could result in a data breach.

CompliaShield can help eliminate the need to ship and store PII to cloud applications and third-party vendors by creating on-demand authorization and authentication without the need to share any data beforehand.
