KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Healthcare system entities are cybersecurity targets.
Hospitals are hit more than 1,400 times a week, according to Check Point Research, a group that analyzes cyber attacks.
It’s been almost a month since a cybersecurity issue disrupted operations at Liberty Hospital.
“We have seen an increase in the number of these attacks,” said Dr. Jeffrey Tully, co-director of the Center for Healthcare Cyber Security.
