Hospitals are struggling to combat cyber attacks

Hackers are increasingly launching malware attacks against medical organizations which cause disruptions in treatments and threaten confidential patient information stored in doctors’ offices and hospitals. According to experts, the healthcare industry generally lags in cybersecurity measures to prevent and respond to attacks.
