Ransomware Shuts Down Colorado Hospital IT Network Amid COVID-19

"Parkview Medical Center is continuing to recover from a ransomware attack that shut down its IT network over a week ago; another ransomware attack and an email hack complete this week’s breach roundup.


Colorado-based Parkview Medical Center’s technology infrastructure was hit with a ransomware attack a week ago on April 21, which caused a number of IT network outages, according to local news outlet KOAA. The hospital is currently serving patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, while they work to recover.

Upon discovering the cyberattack, officials said they engaged with a third-party forensic team to mitigate and investigate the incident. The notice does not detail what systems were affected, when the cyberattack started, nor if patient data was impacted.

The hospital is leveraging paper records to track and treat patients, as they work to restore the impacted systems."
