File Size:  8.28 Mb

According to an IBM report, cyber-attacks in general are on the rise and the global IT threat landscape has shifted from cyber-crime to smaller, stealthier customized attacks on government, financial services, manufacturing and healthcare industries. IBM’s Security Intelligence team reports there were 237 million cyber incidents in 2006 and 108 million of those were reconnaissance attacks to discover devices, software, or vulnerabilities. Healthcare was hit with more than 17 million cyber-attacks that year. 1 That was ten years ago and the problem has only gotten worse.

Targets include utility companies, water purification facilities, dams, transportation systems, and now— hospitals. The majority of healthcare cyber-attacks have been to steal patient information or encrypt those files for ransom. The evolution of cybercrime is pointing toward cyber-attacks targeting patient health and active medical devices connected to the Internet. If there is any doubt in your mind that anyone would want to attack a hospital, look at these examples of criminal hackers and terrorists.
