SANS developed this report based on threat intelligence data gathered by Norse related to healthcare organizations in the US. The report details how healthcare organizations of all types have been and continue to be compromised by successful attacks. 

Among the key findings:

  • Every type of healthcare organization was represented, from hospitals to insurance carriers to pharmaceutical companies 
  • Compromised devices included everything from radiology imaging software, to firewalls, to Web cameras, to mail servers 
  • A significant number of compromises were due to very basic issues such as not changing default credentials on firewalls.
