More healthcare organizations are recognizing the value of appointing a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to develop information security strategy and oversee efforts aimed at preventing breaches.

Healthcare organizations are grappling with information security breaches, and the chances of suffering one are growing every day. Last year alone, the healthcare industry suffered 333 data breaches, up from 16 in 2005, according to statistics from the Identity Theft Resource Center.

The picture appears to be getting bleaker in 2015 with health data hacks making headlines again and again. These include the massive Anthem breach in which an estimated 80 million records may have been exposed. An American Action Forum report estimates dealing with security breaches will cost healthcare organizations more than $37 billion in the first six months of this year alone.
