Clearwater CyberIntelligence Institute® Insight Bulletin

More than half (54%)* of all individuals affected by a healthcare information breach in the past twelve months were impacted by a breach that touched the affected organization’s server, according to data provided on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights Breach Portal: Notice to the Secretary of HHS Breach of Unsecured Protected Health Information. According to the data, ninety (90) healthcare breaches—affecting more than nine million individuals—were related to servers in some way.

Cause For Concern

Servers are critical information system components, providing a central repository of data and critical programs that are shared by users across a hospital or health system network. Protecting the sensitive data that moves across these servers is essential to patient safety. Clearwater’s CyberIntelligence Institute® (CCI) analyzed critical and high risks facing hospitals and health systems in our database over the past six months.
