1 in 3 Americans were victims of healthcare data breaches, attributed to a series of large-scale attacks that each affected more than 10 million individuals, according to Bitglass’ 2016 Healthcare Breach Report. Among the most significant findings of the report was that in 2015, 98 percent of record leaks were due to large-scale breaches targeting the healthcare industry. These high-profile attacks were the largest source of healthcare data loss and indicate that cyber attackers are increasingly targeting medical data.

The following infographic created by Lightcyber illustrates the sick state of healthcare data breaches and how a new category of IT security infrastructure called Behavioral Attack Detection could quickly and efficiently find potential hackers before they steal healthcare data.
