Re: Leaker and Thief
Very funny! Political humor aside, I think we can unfortunately expect more of these incidents to occur as hackers turn their attention to healthcare websites -- both government and commercial. Most, if not all, security experts agree that healthcare networks, databases, etc., are often woefully ill-secured, especially when you consider healthcare records are valued at between $20 to $50 EACH (experts I've spoken to have given me estimates at both ends of that scale). Figure 1M records quickly becomes a pretty good haul.

Last year, there was a lot of discussion about the insecurities surrounding Healthcare.gov, which has a lot more than 1.3M records. When you figure we can individually choose to avoid Target or Michael's or whatever store gets hacked, that's one thing. But when your health records are hacked and your employer's insurer is breached, it gets a lot more complicated than switching out your credit card.
