HIPAA data breaches are occurring at an alarming rate. Every day new healthcare breaches are posted on the HHS website. While hackers tend to cause the most serious data breaches, employee carelessness is also a major contributor.
According to the HIPAA Journal, “Data breaches caused by employee carelessness have increased year on year. More unencrypted devices are being lost, data is still being inadvertently disclosed, and simple email errors are still being made. Performing regular training on data privacy and security can help to reduce the number of data breaches suffered.”
