Data Breach Incidents, Causes, and Response
In October and November of 2012 the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and the Health Care Compliance Association conducted a survey among compliance professionals to better understand the impact and frequency of data breaches. At the time breaches were very much in the news, just as they are today.
To assess whether and how much things had changed in the past four years, SCCE and HCCA fielded the same survey again. The results were surprising: in spite of all the headlines of increased risk, relatively little has changed when it comes to both managing the issue and the number of incidents. In fact, what’s remarkable is that on many measures the numbers were down.
