The threat landscape is changing and hackers have become much more dangerous and disruptive to healthcare. New and emerging attacks are more impactful because they interrupt services and communications. They can cripple an organization by taking down its infrastructure and internet connections, and, most alarmingly, this poses a major risk to patient care.
