1.5m records lost in March health care industry data breaches represents a rather unsettling trend. While it's not pleasant to see personal data compromised at any time, healthcare often holds details of people at their most vulnerable time. No good can come from criminals having access to such data.

One would hope its a wakeup call to healthcare to start investing in more robust and appropriate security controls.
