    "Biggest security threat to US healthcare? Loose lips and lost hardware...

    US healthcare breach incidents have dropped off in the year to date after hitting an all-time high in 2016...

    Unauthorised disclosures are now the leading cause of breaches, accounting for nearly 40 per cent of breaches in 2016. These disclosures can take the form of anything from lost or stolen computers to the accidental mailing of personal information..."

    Important more than ever now that these HealthCare institutions JOINTLY conference ASAP and assist one another in fully upscaling the manner in which records and management of interconnected services are treated to ensure against anything similar catching them off-guard like this again.

    Also it could go a long way in forming a total secure alliance by also reaching out to HealthCare service providers who many of which have not quite the same resources to protect their data in the way that must be secured from outside interference like was just experienced on a big scale.

    Another interesting read again Lone Ranger.
