In the wake of the announcement of the Anthem Data Breach, concerns rise over information security.
The Anthem data breach which exposed the account information of as many as 80 million customers has had a ripple effect through healthcare, raising concerns about the safety and security of personal information across the board. Now the health insurer is being accused of a failure to inform affected customers of the breach according to CNet, and The Wall Street Journal reports insurance regulators are launching an investigation into the data breach.
According to DataBreaches.net there have also been at least four lawsuits filed to date against Anthem inIndiana, California, Alabama and Georgia. The suits allege Anthem did not take adequate and reasonable measures to ensure its data systems were protected and that the 80 million Anthem customers whose information may have been affected could be harmed.
