A cyber security breach temporarily halted cancer radiation treatment services at The Cancer Center of Hawaii on Oahu, according to an article on the Honolulu Civil Beat website.

The company experienced a computer network hack on Nov. 5. and shut down its network servers which temporarily kept it from being able to offer radiation services to cancer patients at two locations.

The company has reported the incident to the FBI and is working with a private computer forensics firm to investigate.

The Cancer Center was able to retrieve all essential patient treatment information from its radiation machines and restore its network to full operation.
