Healthcare Breach Source: Insider Snooping, Identity Theft

When asked about the source of healthcare breaches 29% of respondents to the 2013 Outlook survey said an "insider attack," such as medical record snooping or identity theft.

They ranked the risk of a patient privacy breach by an insider as greater than that of lost or stolen unencrypted devices or paper records.

"29% said healthcare breaches source was "insider attack, such as record snooping or identity theft," greater than "lost or stolen unencrypted electronic devices or paper records", and "hacker attacks."
