Mobile communication: The use of mobile technologies is growing and so is the need to protect the PII/PHI collected, stored and/or transmitted using them.

Expanding use of electronic health records: Close to $2 billion has been paid to providers by both Medicare and Medicaid for the electronic health record incentive program and these payments should increase the use of EHRs while the infrastructure to support information exchange (cloud) and attendant privacy/security concerns becomes a front and center issue.

Data breaches: The Ponemon Institute reported that data breaches in healthcare increased by 32 percent since 2010, costing the industry an estimated $6.5 billion at a time of very tight resources.

Increasing Federal compliance enforcement presence by the FTC and HHS Office of Civil Rights: Penalties and audits mean spending resources to avoid an even larger expenditures later, both direct and indirect.
