NorthShore health system says personal information of 348,000 people potentially exposed in data breach

NorthShore University HealthSystem said the personal information of about 348,000 people may have been exposed in a breach involving one of the health system’s vendors earlier this year.

The breach was the result of a ransomware attack, in which cybercriminals attempt to lock companies out of their own data and servers and demand ransom in order to restore access.
