Ransomware Forces Hospital to Reschedule Procedures
Enloe Medical Center, a hospital in California, US, was forced to reschedule some elective medical procedures following a ransomware attack on New Year’s Eve. The incident prevented staff from accessing information stored on the hospital’s network and affected communications across the facility as phone systems were unavailable. The hospital assured patients that medical data was not compromised and back-up protocols were in place to ensure that patient care remained uninterrupted.
