Research indicates that the number of healthcare cybersecurity breaches is growing. This is likely down to a number of factors that we already know about, such as:
We saw in the 2017 WannaCry incident just how easy it can be for hackers to have a serious impact on the NHS. That particular malware targeted older and more outdated systems that are often not as secure. With some parts of the NHS still reliant on old technology, they were hit hard.
And the value of healthcare data cannot be understated. It’s usually very private and incredibly sensitive, so its value to hackers can be high, and the impact on the victim can be severe.
The healthcare industry appears to be struggling to keep up to ensure they have the means to defend attacks. One study suggested that in 2018 the healthcare industry clearly led the way in terms of the volume of attacks across the world. This comes as no surprise to us given the large number of cases we have that involve healthcare data breaches.
Victims can be entitled to make a claim for compensation as a victim of healthcare cybersecurity breaches. When we assess the claims that we take on, two of the key things we look at are:
If a healthcare cybersecurity incident was preventable, the organisation at the centre of the breach can be liable to compensate you. We then need to look at the level of the impact, and with healthcare data usually being incredibly personal and sensitive medial information, the impact of usually serious.
Data breach compensation amounts can be quite high for healthcare breaches because of the impact the loss of control over medical data can have for the victim.
