Hackers attempted to break into Singing River Health System’s computers

Annie Johnson reports:

Hackers attempted to break into the Singing River Health System’s computer overnight. The attempted cyber-attack triggered security protocols to protect the system’s data.

“Late last night our Information Systems Team detected an attempted attack and immediately activated our security protocols,” said Chief Operating Officer Lee Bond.   “Out of an abundance of caution we shut down our networks entirely so that we could isolate the problem and reboot our system.   We are still evaluating what occurred but have detected no compromises of Protected Health Information or patient data in this attempt.”
