417,000 Augusta University Health patient records breached nearly one year ago

Nearly a year after two targeted phishing attacks, Augusta University Health in Georgia has announced that the personal records of 417,000 patients may have been breached. The attacks, which occurred in September 2017, allowed hackers access to internal email accounts, potentially compromising a range of personal data that could be used for medical fraud. The investigation is ongoing and notifications will be sent to affected patients, along with one year of free credit monitoring. Augusta University Health has implemented new measures to enhance security and prevent future incidents.
