Healthcare's efforts to prevent identity theft are not on par with other industries' efforts, according to a Fortune article.
With an ever-growing number of breaches, cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated, and yet the healthcare industry still struggles to keep up.
"Essentially, criminals have come to understand that using your medical credentials--your name, Social Security Number and health insurance numbers--to order goods and services that are never delivered and to bill organizations like Medicare and Medicaid, those activities are more profitable than drugs, prostitution, and other crimes they may pursue," Rick Kam, president and co-founder of ID Experts, says in the article.
