Researchers build model to predict health data breaches

Texas State University Assistant Professor Alexander McLeod has developed a modeling exposure tool to determine the reasons behind healthcare data breaches. The tool goes beyond the “canned answers” provided by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights’ breach reporting tool and analyzes factors such as employee training and device handling. McLeod’s team used a combination of data sources to create a comprehensive database for analysis, and hopes to refine the tool to make it more predictive in the future.
