Urology Austin: 279,663 affected individuals
Hackers in January unleased a ransomware attack on Urology Austin, a specialty provider operating 13 sites in the Round Rock and Austin metropolitan areas of Texas. While the attack was thwarted and the organization regained access to its systems, it could not be determined whether patient information was accessed by the hackers. Urology Austin offered those affected a year of credit and identity protection services and said no ransom was paid.
