Prioritize data security in the transition to electronic medical records

Medical records are more valuable to hackers than credit card information, and 40 percent of health care organizations reported a cyber attack in 2013. Hospitals often lack up-to-date IT security systems and sometimes are not aware data has been compromised. O’Malley will ensure that medical record security will be a part of comprehensive federal cybersecurity protections.
