What Happened at Designed Receivable Solutions?

On March 23, 2024, Designed Receivable Solutions, Inc. reported a “hacking/IT incident” to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (HHS), noting that over 129,000 individuals may have had their personal information compromised. An investigation is ongoing, and the company should be sending out data breach notification letters to victims of the breach. The letters should contain more details about data is at risk, and how the incident transpired.

Following any data theft incident, victims are urged to remain vigilant, monitor all health and financial accounts, and watch for signs of fraud and identity theft. Any individual who has their sensitive personal information leaked, particularly Social Security numbers and financial information, are at an increased risk of fraud.

Experts in cybersecurity have said that with the increased risk of companies suffering from data breach events, they may be negligent if they do not adhere to IT security standards, and fail to maintain a reasonably secure network. If they cannot manage their own security, they have a duty to hire a third party to assist. Companies have been warned for years about the threat of ransomware and other cyberattacks, and have been encouraged to engage in the following prevention methods:

  • Inventory all sensitive data sets and identify locations of sensitive personal information
  • Limit privileged access to only a few high-level managers
  • Patch vulnerable infrastructure
  • Secure the network perimeter
  • Secure endpoints and limit lateral movement
  • Encrypt data at rest and in transit
  • Implement regular and strict password policies
  • Monitor infrastructure using updated security tools
  • Conduct annual cybersecurity training for employees, contractors and partners
