Healthcare System Notifies 180,000 People 1 Year After Hack

“A Georgia healthcare system is notifying more than 180,000 individuals of a data compromise involving a hacking incident first detected a year ago. The apparent Hive ransomware attack involved hackers accessing and copying files containing patient information, including medical and banking account information. “

“The delayed notification spotlights the range of growing breach response and notification challenges some organizations face, especially as increasing numbers of entities in the healthcare sector and other sectors become the victims of far-reaching data compromises by cybercriminals. “

“Tift Regional Health System said in a Friday data breach disclosure that a hacking incident had been detected on Aug. 16, 2022, and affected 180,142 individuals. “

“Because federal regulators require organizations to report HIPAA breaches affecting 500 or more individuals to HHS OCR within 60 days of discovery, some entities report those breaches with a placeholder estimate - typically 500 individuals - until cyber defenders can determine a more accurate count. “
