Roughly eight out of 10 health information technology leaders recently surveyed say their provider or insurance organizations suffered a cyberattack that compromised their computer systems in the past two years, according to the consulting group KPMG.

Only 16% of the 223 executives who participated in the survey said their organizations had not been compromised in the past 24 months while another 3% were unsure.

The percentage, 81%, with breached systems could be even higher if the remaining 19% are like most health IT leaders, said Michael Ebert, head of KPMG’s health and life sciences cyber practice.
