Healthcare institutions are attractive cyber targets not just because of the potentially lucrative data they maintained, but also because of the inherent infrastructure risks and privacy constraints.

The technology infrastructure supporting the healthcare community tends to be older legacy systems. For example, market research suggests 20% of healthcare organizations in the US and UK still run on Windows XP. Often these systems do not receive security updates with the same level of care and frequency as modernized infrastructure.

This is concerning because, in 2017, we increasingly observed bad actors were performing new tricks with older tools, some of which have been around for nearly 20 years.
