Summary
Vikas Singla, an Atlanta-based cybersecurity executive, has been sentenced to two years of home detention after hacking the Gwinnett Medical Center's computer system in an attempt to boost his struggling company's business. As part of his sentence, Singla also paid over $800,000 in restitution. The hack disrupted more than 200 phones, leaked patient data on social media, and generated over 200,000 emails through the hospital's network. Despite these actions, no patients were harmed. Singla's legal team argued that his sentence should consider his medical condition, charitable work, and lack of prior criminal history.
