Fairfield Memorial Hospital

Fairfield Memorial Hospital, a not-for-profit critical access hospital in Illinois, suffered a security breach perpetrated by the LockBit ransomware group. The group announced the theft of confidential data with the intention of leaking it, compromising sensitive patient and operational information of the hospital, which could cause severe disruptions to services and compromise patient safety. This attack against a healthcare facility not only risks the privacy and financial security of the data subjects but also can delay essential health services, illustrating the growing threat that cybercriminals pose to public health.
