From the perspective of today's cyber criminals, electronic health records contain valuable personal identifiable information that can be easily sold on the black market. In this presentation, Cobb will tell the story of the inner workings of the black market for medical data. Using a real-world scenario, he will describe how that data can get into the wrong hands and the impact that has on victims, from individuals to covered entities.
