PWC Report on Healthcare Data Breaches: According to a new report out by PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute, a majority of healthcare providers aren't taking necessary steps to ensure security of new technologies like mobile devices. They are taking advantage of those technologies and adapting their operations to use increasing amounts of electronic data, but just aren't taking the necessary precautions. The study also found that an increasing amount of data loss in the healthcare industry is perpetrated by insiders seeking to improperly use the information for identity theft or other improper purposes such as drug access.
