Medical record breaches have a double impact, since they harm the healthcare institutions, but also disclose private and sensitive information about the patients. Because of this, the value of EHR (Electronic Health Records) has exceeded the value of financial records, not only because it opens the door for liability actions, but also because it can damage (or ruin) the patients life.

In this talk I will cover the different ways in which an owned server could be taken advantage of for profit purposes, and then I will discuss about the sell value of medical and financial information in the black market. I will cover a few specific recent cases (like the last one from Equifax), describe the attack vector, calculate how much it cost to the companies and end users, and talk about how it could have been fixed.
