Do you know how to handle an unauthorized disclosure of plan data?

2016 was a particularly bad year for healthcare data breaches. In fact, 16,655,952 records were exposed. That's more data breaches reported in 2016 than in any other years.

2017 looks set to be another record breaking year. Between January 1, 2017 and March 31, 2017, seventy-nine data breaches resulted in the theft or exposure of 1,713,591 healthcare records.

The biggest culprit for the breaches? Insider incidents - both error and wrongdoing.

Recognizing the harm caused by data breaches, both HHS and state legislatures are reviewing data breaches with increased scrutiny, and over the past two years several states have amended their laws to require entities that retain sensitive personal data to protect that data in accordance with specified standards.
