Ascension data encrypted in cyberattack

“Patient data from St. Louis-based Ascension was encrypted and stolen in a recent cyberattack on a third-party vendor, the company said. “

“ConsensioHealth, which provides administrative services to medical practices, reported in January that Ascension Wisconsin was caught in the July data breach. The company said it discovered the encryption that month and "eradicated the threat" before determining that hackers had stolen a "number of files and folders." “

“The files contained personal and health data including names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and medical treatment information. ConsensioHealth is notifying affected individuals by mail. Ascension didn't immediately respond to a request from Becker's for comment. Third-party data breaches have been an increased focus of health system cybersecurity leaders. “
