June 29, 2021

The ransomware attack on St. Joseph’s/Candler that was first detected on June 17 is part of a growing trend of such attacks across industries and government, but especially on healthcare providers.

“The truth is that there are a lot of advancements happening in the hacker side of it, how they can get access to those systems,” said Soumitra Bhuyan, assistant professor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. “It’s really scary, right? It’s evil. No question on that.”
