What Happened at BHI Energy?
On October 18, 2023, BHI Energy filed a notice of data breach with the Attorney General of Maine, and began sending out notification letters to tens of thousands of victims nationwide. The company discovered that an unauthorized party was able to access data stored on the company’s computer system, which could include the following:
- Health information
- Dates of birth
- Social Security numbers
Upon completing an IT security investigation, BHI began sending out the data breach notification letters to all individuals whose information was impacted, and may detail exactly which information of yours was leaked.
If you have received a data breach letter from BHI Energy, it is important to understand the identity theft and fraud risks involved with stolen personal data. Our data breach lawyers can help you learn more about how to protect yourself and possibly take legal action.
What Caused the Data Breach?
According to reports, on June 29, 2023, BHI learned that its network had been attacked. An investigation followed, and only recently did the company announce to the public that data was stolen. The investigation, led by a third-party specialist, confirmed that an unauthorized party had accessed and exfiltrated BHI business records, including some files related to the company’s employer-sponsored health plan. This is important because medical information is particularly valuable for some cybercriminals.
