A total of 246,876 U.S. healthcare patient records were breached last month alone, according to data gathered by tech firm Protenus. The new report finds that a significant portion of recent breaches were caused by insiders rather than external cyberattacks like ransomware, a malware variant that has become nearly synonymous with the larger healthcare industry.
