Interesting we have not heard much about Scripps Health Ransomware

It's now been over two weeks that their systems are down. 

 

I've heard patient data is not accessible, the ransomware was able to hit some of their medical devices, and it also compromised their backups. I've also heard they've gone back to paper and pencil/pen to work and the older pre-computerize data doctors are handling it better than those who've only used computers.

 

We are hearing very little about this.

 

The lack of communication is really not sitting well with their patients and staff.

 

Wondering what the fall out will be and how it became so bad.

 

One interesting but not necessarily cyber issue is the staff who could not work due to the incident are/were being asked to use their own PTO to cover their hours. Brings up a discussion on if a company or the employee should be responsible for their hours if an incident like this occurs.

Re: Interesting we have not heard much about Scripps Health Ransomware

Some of it is covered here as well: Privacy Questions Everywhere - Ep 304 - Help Me With HIPAA Scroll down to section: Ransomware Creates a Social Media Privacy Violation Storm. To be honest, I didn't know it was happening until I listened to this.
