Officials Respond to Massive Health-Care Data Breach

dddataA number of high-level state officials have mobilized to protect Californians in the wake of what could be one of the largest health-care data breaches in the U.S. Last week a breach of Anthem Inc. data affecting as many 80 million customers came to light. Experts say the intrusion is likely the work of state-sponsored foreign entities that are purposely stealing personal information from health-care companies. Attorney General Kamala Harris is urging Californians, if necessary, to place a fraud alert, review credit reports and consider a security freeze in order to protect personal information. “The Anthem breach underscores the need for insurance companies to take every precaution to protect their customers’ information and make their consumers whole when a data breach occurs,” said Commissioner Dave Jones in a recent article at www.govtech.com.
