Perhaps no part of industry has been stung by the scourge of ransomware over the past year than hospitals.

The non-profit Center for Internet Security is seeking to lend a hand, pledging a $1 million investment to provide any private hospital with free ransomware protection in the form of malicious domain blocking and reporting services.
