Hacker: Health Security is "Wild West"

What Kevin Johnson, a professional "ethical" hacker, sees regarding healthcare data security terrifies him.

The overwhelming majority of healthcare related organizations have security "that sucks," according to Johnson. Alarmingly, a call from the FBI is often how a healthcare organization learns of a data security issue.

"3,000 organizations of all types, but very many of them medical related, the way they found out there was a problem with their network is they got a phone call from the FBI. If the FBI is initiating your incidence response, you have a problem."
- Kevin Johnson, professional hacker
As Johnson said "If the FBI is initiating your incidence response, you have a problem." To avoid learning of identity theft and data privacy breaches from law enforcement, organizations can proactively detect such issues with low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics services.
