Most data breaches in healthcare
Web portals and e-mails are still used to exchange this data and yet these channels are not well protected or are highly complicated to use. This can be the cause of a data leak for the sender or recipient. Last year, the healthcare sector was responsible for most of the data leaks. 29% of all leaks (20,881 in 2018) were reported from organizations in healthcare. Even this year, most of the leaks come from this sector.
The consequences for the patient as well as the healthcare institution are significant. As an institution, under the new privacy laws of the GDPR, you are responsible for taking measures to prevent this from happening. In the Netherlands, there is another law where organizations need to comply with: the NTA 7516. It is an addition to the GDPR and needs to be followed by May 2020.
