The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information: 2017 Update

A must read White Paper for Healthcare Leaders to learn about securing protected health information

Published originally in 2012, the whitepaper revealed a new predictive analytics model (PHIve) for evaluating and recommending the appropriate investments necessary to protect PHI and mitigate the risks of data breach.

Over the last five years, new threat vectors such as state-sponsored hackers, new tools for ransomware attacks easily purchased on the Dark Web, and new vulnerabilities including insufficiently protected medical devices and unpatched applications have increased the ease and rewards of stealing health information. The 2017 Update includes a proven use case of PHIve and is available for free download.
