Summary
The article discusses the recent Ascension cyberattack and its implications for the healthcare sector. While the Change Healthcare breach in February gained more attention, the Ascension attack in May has underscored ongoing vulnerabilities in the industry. Ascension, which operates 140 hospitals nationwide, was forced to revert to paper records due to the attack, highlighting significant risks to patient safety. Experts emphasize that the healthcare sector continues to face a rising number of cyber threats, with large breaches and ransomware attacks increasing dramatically. There is growing pressure on hospitals, the HHS, and lawmakers to adopt more stringent cybersecurity measures, although the hospital lobby calls for financial support to meet these demands.
