Few industries require organizations to channel and store vast amounts of sensitive data like healthcare. Healthcare organizations and third-party associates possess valuable patient health information that goes for top dollar on the dark web.

The Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights (HHS OCR) continues to diligently focus on enforcement of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) through audits and breach investigations for incidents large and small. Penalties and reputational damage by listing on the HIPAA “wall of shame” can be devastating.
