Proofpoint should prepare to get sued by new Salem Health heart attack survivors

According to FM NEWS 101 (read the story here), Salem Health got breached. But according to the ace PR team, "…patient information was not misused." Right. Phished? Likely. Protected by proofpoiint? Nah. DMARC set to (p=none).

So why should proofpoint prepare for lawsuits? According to Krebs on Security (read the story here), ransomware data breaches at hospitals tied to an uptick in fatal heart attacks. Now, if I were an ambulance chaser attorney, I'd name proofpoint as well as Salem Health in any wrongful heart attack lawsuits.
