UC San Diego Health experienced a ransomware attack threatening critical healthcare operations. As the medical industry increases reliance on technology, such attacks can have dire consequences on patient care and outcomes. The attack's costliness, with an average of $11 million according to IBM, poses risks to smaller healthcare systems' existence, potentially leading to their permanent closure. Patients in remote areas would be most affected due to the scarcity of nearby medical facilities. In response, federal funding has been allocated to develop better preventative and mitigative measures, focusing on cybersecurity in healthcare.
