There is no way to stop a data breach
If you have been reading the news, you know cyber-breaches are getting out of control. A recent article contained a statement of truth from Daniel Marvin, Cybersecurity Attorney, Stern & Montana. He states “There is no way to stop a data breach. Hackers are smart, they are well-funded and they are relentless. You really can't build a firewall high enough to keep them out.”
He's absolutely correct. You MUST understand that preventative security measures reduce break-ins, but cannot stop them. Therefore, you must have a solution in place to detect the breach and stop it. It is the final brick in the cyber-defense wall. Make sure you have the proper tools to protect your ePHI.
