As for the bad actors, Stacy Stevens, unit chief of the cyber division at the FBI, says those range from foreign nation states to criminals in the U.S., and include those seeking to leverage personal patient information they access. "If I know everything about you, I can target you," Steven notes, regarding a common motive of hackers seeking to access health data. And those seeking to break health institution's cybersecurity aren't just attempting to access patient information. For example, animal research can open up organizations to being the targets of "hacktivism," she adds.
