“Healthcare data carries an extraordinarily high value on the black market, typically worth 10 to 40 times more than a credit card number. Transferring such valuable information over unencrypted technologies, as now temporarily permitted, creates a situation ripe for hacking. Hackers can simply insert themselves in the unsecured communication, take the information they desire, and proceed to sell the information to perform various types of healthcare fraud or identity theft.”
