Medical Data Breaches at Blue Shield, New West Expose 46,000 Customers’ Info
Two health service providers recently acknowledged data breaches affecting thousands of clients.
Blue Shield of California says the personal information of almost 21,000 people who enrolled in coverage between October 2013 and December 2015 may have been exposed as a result of a data breach at a third-party vendor, the Orange County Register reports.
That breach, according to Blue Shield’s notification letter [PDF], “happened between September and December of 2015 and was the result of log-in credentials for certain Blue Shield customer service representatives being misused.”
