Ransomware targets and infects 38% of IT pros in healthcare
"Ransomware is becoming a more prevalent threat actor, targeting and infecting 38% of healthcare IT professionals.
Results from a Varonis Systems study of over 100 healthcare IT pros showed that of the respondents infected with ransomware, the biggest change has been to increase security education for employees.
Almost half (47%) detected their ransomware hack from a pop-up saying the files had been infected. Only 26% were caught by a security technology and 18% noticed by IT personnel.
Nearly all (94%) had endpoint protection in place on the infected workstations. Half of all respondents (50%) had to manually inspect file shares in order to look for signs of infection to determine which users/systems had been infected and which files were encrypted.”
