10 largest healthcare cyber attacks of 2015
How dangerous are the cyber hackers targeting the U.S. healthcare industry? Health Data Management, a SourceMedia publication, tracked 10 major hacks announced during 2015, with the single largest victimizing 78.8 million individuals. Some of the attacks started in 2014 or even earlier, but were not discovered until much later. The total number of victims from these hacks (not counting a newly disclosed one that may be substantial) is 109,671,626, which represents about one-third of the population of the U.S. Each hacked organization has offered paid credit and/or identity theft protection services. Here are the largest from 2015.
