Modeling Factors Associated with Healthcare Data Breaches
3:00pm - 4:00pmWednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
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.
