Don't Think This Will Happen To You?

In the latter part of April 2017, a network of hospitals and healthcare facilities in the United Kingdom were targeted and struck with Ransomware, rendering their machines and communication devices inoperable. Not only was this attack unexpected, but there were no safeguards in place to counteract the repercussions of the attack. Many of their machines that are used to save lives such as MRI machines, Vital Sign Monitors, and other computer systems necessary to keep track of patient health were all locked. With time wasting away and no end in sight, the grace of a fearless young man helped decrypt the virus and power the machines back to working order.

The hospitals and healthcare facilities that were affected by this act of cyber terrorism felt the same way you currently do. They felt as if nobody would ever target a hospital where sick children and adults require the constant working condition of all tools. HOWEVER, the attack for many of those facilities is still not over. Check out how the adverse affect of being hit with Ransomware is continuing to hurt these very same healthcare facilities.
