In the 3rd quarter of 2021, the healthcare industry hit an unfortunate milestone of recording at least one ransomware attack against a healthcare facility every single day. The healthcare sector's widespread use of legacy devices and massive amounts of stored Protected Healthcare Information (PHI), makes the industry an environment ripe for threat actors.
