The medical sector has become the main target of ransomware for its sensitive data and room for digital improvement

There are many ways that medical information can be compromised, including human error, phishing, or ransomware attacks. Ransomware is extremely malicious and has the ability to bring networks to a standstill and cause catastrophic damage to an infrastructure. The medical industry is aware of this threat and from three years to 2025 plans to spend $125 billion on cybersecurity. HelpRansomware’s functions are based on the areas of ransomware prevention, removal and decryption, for the past 25 years. The company, led by Andrea Baggio and Juan Ricardo Palacio, is a world leader in cybersecurity and decryption. Ransomware targets healthcare industry Hospitals are targeted by ransomware for two main reasons. First, the industry has a large amount of sensitive patient data, which hackers can use to extort money. Second, most medical equipment and services are not yet digitized, making them vulnerable to cybercrime. . Criminals take advantage of their vulnerability, forcing hospitals and medical centers to pay a ransom to recover encrypted files. Healthcare is most likely to pay the ransom ranking first within all sectors at 61%. “Hackers should not be paid the ransom,” stressed Andrea Baggio, CEO EMEA HelpRansomware. In fact, the healthcare organizations that paid the ransom recovered only 65% ​​of their data. In addition, communication with cybercriminals exposes vulnerability and interest in negotiation. The power of information in the ransomware attack “About five years ago, we observed a change in trend: some companies did not want to pay because they were aware that, even if they did, they would not obtain the data; At that moment, the hackers decided to give a one more step: extract important information and post it on the Deep Web”, says Juan Ricardo Palacio, CEO America HelpRansomware. On pages located on the Deep Web or Dark Web, they sell the data to the best bidder or simply offer it to the general public.” Kidnapping is not removing the data, kidnapping is encrypting the data. This is how they prevent access to information,” emphasizes Palacio. According to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services, the cost per incident of a data breach in health care has reached $10.10 million. In the digital age, ransomware has become a real risk for businesses. “This virus causes significant inactivity in companies, encrypting financial, personal or patent data,” concludes Baggio. HelpRansomware offers 24/7 global assistance, guaranteeing data decryption, in a determined and fast time. The company is part of the ReputationUP group, a multinational specialized in online reputation management.
