Neary 1.1 million patients in Michigan have been affected by ransomware attacks since 2016 — the most in the United States, according to a Comparitech survey.

In the Comparitech study released Feb. 11, researchers analyzed data from IT news channels, data breach reports and HHS Office for Civil Rights data breach portal. Then, Comparitech applied data from studies on the cost of downtime to estimate a range for the likely cost of ransomware attacks.
