Read more on The State. i had been aware of a Prisma health incident that had been reported to HHS on sep 6 as impacting 2,770 patients, but that had been reported to HHS as involving theft of PHI that were in paper/film format, not anything that would sound like compromise of an email account resulting in photograph online. Was this a sec and unrelated incident? It sounded like it, so i checked Prisma Health’s web site, and found three data hack security notices: A notice of theft incident involving the OB/GYN department at Richland Hospital dated sep 24, 2019. The story corresponded to the nag account to HHS in September: a notebook was stolen on July 9 from a physician’s car and was reported to them on July 22; A mark of theft incident involving the Emergency department at RIchland Hospital also dated September 24, 2019 that also corresponded to the hack report to HHS in September: a notebook was stolen on June 30 from a physician’s machine and reported to Prisma Health on July 9. Prisma health did not designate whether this was ii incidents affecting the same physician or it involved different physicians, but presumption that they provided different dates of theft, this site is treating the thefts as ii incidents. The third observation was the single related to today’s intelligence story on The State: a notification dated october 29 of a cyber attack that compromised an employee’s login credentials to a Palmetto Health webite. According to their notice: Prisma health determined that the compromised login credentials provided access to patient pre-registration and volunteer registration information forms previously completed on the Palmetto health website at www.palmettohealth.org. The personal information affected may have included an affected individuals full name, address, date of nascency and health information. in some instances, Social Security numbers and health indemnity information were affected.
