Managing Third-Party risk was a hot topic at SecureWorld conferences around North America in 2017.

HIPPA Journal reports that Cook County Health and Hospitals System, a health system comprising two hospitals and more than a dozen community health centers in Cook County Illinois, has alerted patients to a breach of their protected health information.

The breach occurred at Experian Health, a business associate of Cook County Health and Hospitals System. Experian Health is contracted to determine insurance eligibility and limited patient information is disclosed to the business associate for this purpose.
