According to Solutionary, an NTT Group security company from the site Healthcare Dive, “The healthcare industry was the victim of 88% of all ransomware attacks in U.S. industries last year (2016)”.
Cyber criminals finds it easy to extort money from healthcare providers because they know that the data they encrypted are all of great value. The data includes patient details and other confidential information. And it seems that these cyber predators are all set for round 2.
The healthcare industry suffered the most in past years and they must improve their security to maintain the safety of their networks. Before the newest kind of ransomware is released, healthcare security must take on changes to further improve their defense versus the new scare of ransomware version 2.0. -Mayvilyn Cabigao
