Cummins Behavioral Health Systems (CBHS) has reported a ransomware incident to the Maine attorney general that has allegedly affected over 157,000 patients. The company has begun sending out data breach notice letters to all impacted, outlining what information may be at risk.
Healthcare data theft incidents have increased dramatically over the last five years and now threaten millions of Americans. Stolen information can be used to steal identities and criminals can initiate other types of fraud.
Back on March 9, 2023, a ransom note was detected within the Cummins computer network that had been placed there by an assumed hacker. No file encryption occurred but the attacker claimed to have viewed sensitive personal data. An investigation confirmed that the unauthorized individual had access to the network between February 2, 2023, and March 9, 2023.
What information was impacted?
The information removed from the Cummins Behavioral Health systems included names, biometrics, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license/State ID numbers, financial account information, payment card information, usernames/passwords, health insurance information, and medical information.
CBHS is a private not-for-profit organization providing behavioral health services in Boone, Hendricks, Marion, Montgomery, Putnam, and surrounding counties in Indiana.
