My esteemed listmates,

Has anyone found reliable analysis and risk factoring of the
vulnerabilities of health care (medical) portals?

Health care professionals from doctor offices to hospitals all insist
patients subscribe to their health care portal.

That raises the question of how difficult is it for hackers to access your
medical records?

We’ve seen in the news how county governments have had to pay for the
ransomware holding their operational software hostage.

Is it such a stretch those nefarious characters could also hack our medical
records and hold hospitals hostage?

They could, conceivably, do the same with library materials patrons have
checked out holding the county hostage for that info.

Thank you.
