Cybersecurity in Canadian Healthcare. In recent years, Canadian healthcare has witnessed an alarming rise in cyberattacks. These incidents, ranging from ransomware attacks to data breaches, have disrupted healthcare services and threatened patient safety and privacy. As we step into 2024, it’s crucial to prioritize cybersecurity in healthcare to safeguard against these evolving digital threats.
The Canadian healthcare system has experienced significant digital transformation, especially with the increased use of telemedicine and electronic health records. However, this digital shift has opened new avenues for cybercriminals. For instance, in southwestern Ontario, five hospitals fell victim to a cyber-attack, impacting patient records and causing significant service delays. Similarly, a ransomware attack on SickKids Hospital led to substantial treatment delays, highlighting the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures.
