Cyberattacks are growing in number and severity in healthcare, particularly ransomware attacks. A 2021 survey by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found that 34% of healthcare organizations were hit by ransomware in the previous year. HHS also reported that the average cost for rectifying a ransomware attack was $1.27 million. Considering the razor-thin margins under which most rural and underserved healthcare providers operate, a ransomware attack could easily threaten the survival of these practices.
