This ransomware gang is a right Royal pain in the AES for healthcare orgs


If only

If only there was a way to keep these sensitive records away from hackers. Oh yeah, paper. In my experience, a doctor in the examination room with me and a paper copy of my records... looks at it. What they don't do is reference my record while in the exam room when the records are digital. I have gotten into the habit of bringing my own paper copies... and they will look at those. Also, nurses that don't have a paper copy staring in their face to reference while they are actively doing things in the hospital room... make more mistakes and I can't see the doctor's orders to help back them up. They often have machines available in the rooms, but don't log into them. Or have a machine they carry with them, but don't use.

At some point, we need to realize that the medical community doesn't really want computers and they suck at using them.
