In May of this year over one million patients and staff members of Tampa General Hospital were effected by a cybersecurity breach. (source)
This attack went on for 18 days before unusual activity was detected and the hospitals cybersecurity team stopped the attack before it got excessively worse.
The team was able to prevent the hackers from encryption, allowing them to restore their files without being forced to pay ransom. Any further attack, “would have significantly interrupted the hospital’s ability to provide care for patients.”
The consequences of this attack are significant as various files were stolen containing personal informaton and these individuals are now dealing with lasting security threats.
