BREACH REPORT 2015: Protected Health Information
This is Redspin’s 6th annual Breach Report: Protected Health Information (PHI). At the conclusion of each year, we analyze the complete statistical data set of large breaches that have been reported to HHS. In the report, we assess the overall effectiveness of the current policies and controls designed to safeguard PHI. In the current year, we identify significant trends and draw attention to the specific areas most in need of improvement. We then offer Redspin’s recommendations for preventive measures and corrective actions to address any critical gaps or weaknesses. Our goal is to help the healthcare industry continually improve its ability to protect patient information. As always, we hope this year’s report makes an important contribution.
