Hospital Addresses Data Breach

Dec 4, 2019

Nebraska Medicine is addressing a recent data breach.  Hospital officials released a statement yesterday noting that the breach was discovered in October during an audit of the medical record system.  The audit revealed that an employee accessed records outside of their job responsibility sometime between July 11th and October 1st, and that worker was immediately fired.  The hospital says letters have been sent to patients whose medical and personal information was accessed, and free credit monitoring is being offered for a year.
