First, today’s weather:
Very warm with plenty of sun. High: 104 Low: 70.
Here are the top three stories today in Yuma:
- Navy aviation units are taking a “safety pause” in response to the two crashes that occurred near Yuma last week. The pause is reportedly necessary to review risk-management practices and to conduct training on error-management processes. Currently deployed units will conduct a similar pause at the earliest convenience. (KESQ)
- A ransomware attack at Yuma Regional Medical Center has affected 700,000 patients. The cyber attack occurred in April and hackers obtained health information. A third-party forensics team was engaged to determine the scope of the attack after the authorities were notified. Patients received a notification letter about the issue. (HIPA Journal)
