In 2017, healthcare organizations are predicted to be one of the top targets for cyber security threats. Historically, healthcare has ranked in the top of the list, but this year it has moved to the front of the line. Security breaches involving more than 500 records have increased 300% in the last three years. The recent announcement from CMS at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Provider-Enrollment-and-Certification/SurveyCertificationGenInfo/Downloads/Survey-and-Cert-Letter-17-17.pdf confirms just how serious everyone needs to treat this issue.
