120M Affected by Health Data Breaches Since 2009

Since 2009, there have been more than 1,100 health data breaches that have affected more than 120 million people, according to a review of the HHS data by the Washington Post.

Rachel Seeger, an HHS Office for Civil Rights spokesperson, said, "Health care organizations need to make data security central to how they manage their information systems and to be vigilant in assessing and addressing the risks to data on a regular basis."

"Industry experts expect the number of health data breaches to increase in 2015."
