Toronto: Sickkids Hospital in Toronto is facing an attack of cybersecurity, which has also disrupted many of its network systems. But the hospital says that despite all this, the treatment of patients will continue. There is no evidence that any patient’s personal or health information has been compromised.
A spokesman of the hospital said it called the hospital code for “system failure.” It all started at 9:30 pm on Sunday.
The spokesperson also said that due to this glitch, people found it difficult to call the hospital and access certain webpages. The web pages for which the trouble occurred included AboutKidsHealth.ca and the hospital’s career application portals.
In a news release, the hospital said an investigation has been launched into the matter as soon as the incident came to light.
