Millions of Private Medical Calls Exposed in Sweden and Why You Should Care

This past week ComputerSweden reported that a Swedish company left 2.7 million recorded calls available on an unencrypted server. The .WAV and MP3 files contained over 170,000 hours of calls to a Swedish HealthCare Guide, this is the equivalent to Phone Information Nurse in the UK or TeleHealth in Canada.

Just because you’re not in Sweden doesn’t mean you’re safe. Unfortunately, this isn’t a unique event! Reuters found the number of healthcare breaches goes up every year, with over 4.4 million records exposed in the 3rd quarter of last year alone.
