At the end of the day there will always be data breaches. However, it should be noted that health care companies seem to be having a disporpotioate amount of data breaches.

Negligence
The different entities in the healthcare industry should be charged with negligence that has led to these data breaches, as they should in many other industries, because of their intrasingence towards security in their organizatons that are charged with upholding a certain criteria regarding safeguarding the data that people give them.  It would almost be like they want the data to be lost because it later appears as data that can be bought by private business so that they don't have to abide by the HIPPA rules.  Business may not be hiring the proper people and/or the correct amount of people to protect their data because they just wink at each other in business.  No matter what the reasoning, these businesses are the ones responsible for allowing unauthorized use of their servers or workstations because they have been negligent.  It only takes on look at their yearly profits to see that they could have well afforded to hire the small amount of technicians who could protect their networks and servers.  I am tired of seeing these stories because there is no such thing as protected data anymore.  This is just another example of how business is unable to take care of things themselves but always seem to need regulations to lead them by the hand to make them abide by certain norms to accomplish their mission, which is at odds with them making horrendous amounts of profit!  It is time for this to stop!

Healthcare breaches
2015 was big in particular for this activity.  At a healthcare IT conference I went to last month (one I go to almost every year), one of the speakers referred to 2015 as "the year of the healthcare breach" -- and it's something that has worried the industry (as well as government regulators) quite a bit.  Security was much more top-of-mind at this year's conference than it had been in the past.
