Blockchain Floated as a Solution for Medical Data Hacks
Medical records have evolved from paper to electronic health records. And with an uptick in data breaches, some health technology experts advocate for cybersecurity using blockchain technology.
Brian Horton, CEO of Breadcrumb Cybersecurity in Fresno, estimates the company is helping contain a 300% increase in cyberincidents year-over-year.
Breadcrumb Cybersecurity services clinics and hospitals by reviewing their security posture for preventative measures or helping navigate cyberincidents.
Horton said that he has “dramatically, without a question” noticed an uptick in cybersecurity compromises.
Notable breaches include the Microsoft Exchange Server and SolarWinds breaches. A cyber espionage group, “Hafnium,” breached a Microsoft Exchange Server in early March and hacked more than 30,000 organizations. The group operates from China.
