CA: Enloe targeted by ransomware attack and elective procedures delayed

I missed this one when it was first published.  Ashley Gardner reported on January 3:

Enloe Medical Center was targeted by a ransomware attack on Tuesday that caused the hospital to reschedule some elective procedures.

According to hospital officials, data stored on the hospital’s network was encrypted, preventing staff from accessing the information.

Kevin Woodward, CFO of the medical center, said there is no evidence suggesting patient medical data has been compromised.

The hospital is working with the FBI and a security consultant to restore its systems and will provide updates as they become available, officials said
