A ransomware attack reported by Eskenazi Health has potentially compromised the personal health information of patients and employees. The personal data was allegedly stolen and released on the dark web.
Eskenazi Health has been sending data breach notification letter to individuals who may have been impacted, detailing the types of personal information leaked. The Eskenazi data breach may have included the following personal information:
- Dates of birth
- Telephone numbers
- Driver’s license numbers
- Passport numbers
- Social security numbers
- Credit card information
In some cases, additional medical information like patients’ diagnosis, physician’s name, prescriptions, and insurance information was compromised in the breach.
The Eskenazi Health data breach occurred sometime during May 2021 and officials discovered the attack in August when suspicious activity was detected in the health network. The Eskenazi ransomware attack caused serious disruption at the Indianapolis hospital. The hackers responsible may have posted some or all of the stolen medical data online.
The Lyon Firm is investigating the Eskenazi data breach and is actively involved in numerous data privacy cases and has experience filing data security claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.
