from American Medical Association
Small organizations, including physician practices, represented the largest number of data breaches in 2011, according to Verizon's annual Data Breach Investigations Report. One of the reasons breaches at small healthcare organizations are on the rise is that automated attacks searching for remote Internet access services combined with weak passwords "were successful against smaller healthcare businesses, such as physicians' offices and clinics," said Marc Spitler, senior risk analyst of RISK Intelligence for Verizon.
