As we have repeatedly noted, identity theft is a multi-billion dollar problem. Many companies have responded to this threat by upgrading their security procedures. However, some companies continue to put their customers and patients at risk. Today, the Cancer Care Group in Indianapolis announced that it has exposed the medical and personal information of 55,000 people.
The Cancer Care Group operates over 20 treatment facilities in Indiana. Reports indicate that the stolen data includes: “names, addresses, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers for both parties as well as medical and insurance information for patients and beneficiary, employment, or financial information for employees.” Disclosure of personal information and medical information is unlawful, and we have brought lawsuits on behalf of victims of such disclosures in the TRICARE/SAIC, Zappos, Sutter Health and Saint Joseph data breaches.
