Methodist Hospital in Henderson taking steps to ensure cyber security

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - Continuing coverage of that "Ransom-Ware" cyber security attack on Methodist Hospital, we first told you about on Friday.

Hospital officials said they are taking steps to make sure they aren't attacked again.  They've contacted their spam-ware and anti-virus provider.  And, they've initiated employee training.

Hospital officials chose not to pay the ransom.  They said their network is back up and running smoothly and no patient information was compromised.
