In Healthcare Id Theft is an Insider Threat

Interesting insight from a recent piece in Dark Reading on how insiders are the biggest risk related to id theft, especially in hospitals and other healthcare organizations.
"A majority of cases that we investigate end up being insiders rather than external hacking or anything of that nature." - Brian McGinley, senior vice president of data risk management for Identity Theft 911
"If we characterize a trend based on the breaches we've seen, it's probably been related to insiders being recruited or placed by organized fraud and ID theft rings. They're out to steal patient information, employee information and doctor information--all very rich fodder for identity theft."
