Dive Brief:

  • More than one in four ransomware attacks in healthcare impact patient care, according to a new survey out this week from advisory firm Software Advice.
  • About half of healthcare organizations that experienced a ransomware attack said the breach impacted patient data — and 34% said they failed to recover the data after the attack.
  • Cyberattacks can result in pricey downtime and delay critical procedures, the report said, but only 63% of companies report having a cybersecurity response plan in place.
