The ten largest healthcare data breaches of 2016 included nine providers and one business associate (BA), affecting nearly 13 million individuals. Even more alarming, the number of cyber attacks on the healthcare industry has more than doubled since 2010.

To cyber criminals, the continued allure of protected health information contained in medical records remains clear: patient names, addresses, medical record numbers, birthdays and Social Security numbers can be used to fraudulently obtain credit cards or loans and commit tax or insurance fraud. A single medical record is worth 10 to 20 times more than a US credit card number.

This ebook is specially designed to help business associates understand how the HIPAA Security Rule translates into requirements for technology environments used to manage PHI data. These environments increasingly center on cloud data warehouses for the data-intensive analytics and optimization services that many BAs offer.
