Modeling Factors Associated with Healthcare Data Breaches

3:00pm - 4:00pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4401

Description

This session provides an overview of the modeling process used to analyze factors associated with healthcare organization data breaches. Examining an organization's level of exposure, level of security and organizational factors provides insight into potential weaknesses. Associating data from multiple sources, preparing big data for analysis and modeling variables for analysis is challenging for any organization. This session discusses the process used in testing data breach/no data breach factors. Data were obtained from healthcare facilities reporting data breaches and from a large national database of technical and organizational infrastructure information. Results indicate several exposure, security and organizational factors significantly associated with healthcare data breaches.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize opportunities to model exposure, security and organizational factors
  • Identify data opportunities to assess vulnerabilities in organizations
  • Hypothesize factors associated with the level of exposure, the level of security and the organization to create a testable research question
