No country can stop the hackers, not Finland, nor any other Nordic country…

The American National Security Agency (NSA) has admitted that a group called “The Shadow Brokers” had infiltrated their IT system in April this year, and stolen their most sophisticated hacking software!

A few months later at least 150 000 computer systems of companies and of the public sector around the world were hacked and ransoms were demanded.

They still do not know if this group (The Shadow Brokers) is Russian or North Korean.

The costs of cyber security for companies averages around €10 million.

Finland is currently trying to implement a huge healthcare reform for 5.5 million people – this is called the SOTE reform.

The expected cost of the electronic health records are said to be €1.5 billion. That is the very first cost estimate and it is a well known fact that such huge systems end up costing double or three times that amount.

That is not only the biggest problem facing this new digital solution for national healthcare – hackers appear to enjoy breaking into healthcare records, and the estimated cost of one lost record is around €400 according to the Ponemon Institute.

The Finnish government is taking a major risk to create a vulnerable national system of electronic healthcare records. It is a sad fact that the world’s most advanced public protectors of state secrets, the American NSA, has already admitted that they can be hacked!

No matter how good the encryption and no matter how strong the defences, it appears that all networked data bases can be broken into if groups like the Shadow Brokers want to steal data or demand a ransom.

Of course, somebody can say that Trump & Co are amateurs, but it is quite probable that he was not the software genius who produced this hacking software for the CIA…

People in government here in Finland can believe that they are creating a safe and robust system of electronic records – but believing is not a good enough way to protect health records from the costly risks involved.
