According to the “Sixth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data,” 50 percent of surveyed health care providers named cybercriminal attacks as the root cause of a data breach they experienced in the past two years, compared to 45 percent in the 2015 and as little as 20 percent when the survey first debuted in 2011. An error by a third-party party partner was the next most commonly cited cause, at 41 percent (respondents were allowed to cite multiple causes). Stolen computing devices ranked third at 39 percent.
