Unfortunately, it appears MERCY MEDICAL CENTER in Iowa failed to protect the sensitive information of a massive number of people.
HOW DID THE BREACH OCCUR?
According to various news sources, the attack did not affect patient care but prevented access to its systems while the attack was remediated. The review of the incident is ongoing, but it has been confirmed that the following types of information have been exposed: name, address, date of birth, driver’s license/state identification number, Social Security number, financial account information, medical record number, encounter number, Medicare or Medicaid identification number, mental or physical treatment/condition information, diagnosis code/information, date of service, admission/discharge date, prescription information, billing/claims information, personal representative or guardian name, and health insurance information.
Cybercriminal use personal information with the primary incentive of using that private data to commit identity theft and financial fraud.
