Cyberattacks on the Rise
The healthcare industry in the United States is a prime target for persistent cyberattacks. According to HIPAA Journal, “Two-thirds of the largest 15 data breaches reported in October involved ransomware. CISA, the FBI, and the HHS issued a joint alert in October.” *1
Hackers are now targeting and blackmailing healthcare organizations and even patients. These ransomware attacks will not only damage productivity and reputation but could result in class-action lawsuits. Ultimately, they could cost money, jobs, and lives.
