Ransomware Attacks: Why Hospitals? Why Now?
The digital era has swept in a new "crime of the century," and hospitals are in the crosshairs.
Ransomware: A New Crime For A New Century
The kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh Jr., the payment of ransom, and the child’s subsequent murder so gripped the nation in 1932 that the episode was labeled the “crime of the century.” We’re well into a new century now, and criminals are once again demanding ransom from their victims. This time, though, it’s our computers, not our children that are being targeted. (Eisenhower, 4/29)
