Medical Identity Theft:

yet another story
on how it's the fastest growing type of identity theft. Some good points about your strategy for preventing it: it should include
- Encryption: at least consider it, but realize that sometimes -- for example, in the Anthem hack, the hackers got access to system administrator accounts, so they had the encryption key anyway.
- Data Loss Prevention: DLP encompasses several concepts, such as software to analyze data access and use, and systems to see when data is moved into or out of the system. It is always a good idea.
- Cyber insurance: check out prices and see if it's worthwhile to you. But make sure you know what you are buying: what is covered, what isn't, who pays first dollar, who picks the breach response and rehabilitation vendors, and where does the coverage end.
