That’s nearly double the number of breaches over the same time last year. In this episode, host Craig Wilson sits down with J. Foster Davis, co-founder and chief operating officer of BreachBits, one of the cybersecurity companies working to protect healthcare providers and other organizations from these types of incidents.
