Increasingly, hospitals are being targeted and successfully attacked by ransomware gangs. Most recently, the Hive ransomware gang successfully attacked the non-profit Memorial Health System.
Memorial Health System has 64 clinics, over 3,000 employees, and evidence indicates that over 200,000 patients’ data was stolen.
Disruptions to hospital services, in the past, have caused deaths. This recent attack has disrupted clinical and financial operations with surgical cases being canceled. Employees were forced to work with paper charts.
While Hive is a new ransomware gang, they have already claimed several victims.
Regardless of how new or old a ransomware gang is, Acronis Cyber Protect stops ransomware. Its built-in Active Protection stops Hive ransomware because of its advanced behavioral engine.
