Prominent healthcare IT contractor suffers data breach affecting 45,000 patients

Synopsis

In May 2018, the healthcare company disclosed that 45,000 patient records were accessed by an unauthorized party. The breached records included patient names, dates of birth, medical record numbers and information about their medical condition and treatments.

The cause of the breach has been identified as a former employee hacking into the company’s servers though it appears that none of the records were used for malicious purposes.
