Who is Vulnerable to a Cyber Attack? Everyone!

Hospital chain says ‘IT security issue’ disrupts operations (in today's USA Today)

A major nonprofit health system with 140 hospitals in 21 states, CommonSpirit Health, is reporting an “IT security issue” that has disrupted operations in multiple states.

A company spokesperson would not explain the nature of the apparent cyberattack, such as whether the organization’s IT network was hit by ransomware.

The Des Moines Register said the incident occurred Monday and forced the diversion of ambulances from the emergency department of the city’s Mercy One Medical Center to other medical facilities.

In a statement Tuesday, CommonSpirit said it had taken “certain IT systems offline” including electronic health records, as a precaution and rescheduled some appointments.
