94% of Medical Institutions have been victim of a cyber attack. Will that number grow?

According to Prof. Ari Shamiss, CEO of Assuta Medical Centers Network, the medical industry was the target of 88% of the ransomware attacks in the United States, in 2017.

And how are hackers entry to the medical industry? Through medical devices of course. Shamiss continues, "In a best-case scenario, these attackers would compromise patient data privacy. In a worst-case scenario, they would gain control of these medical devices, potentially shut them down or disconnect them, which could result in patient harm or even death." Medical devices are particularly vulnerable because they lack the proper mechanism for security software patching as well as sufficient security controls and visibility.
