Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Central Indiana Orthopedics for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information in a data breach that occurred in October of 2021. The data breach was caused by unauthorized access to the orthopedic center’s servers through a ransomware attack that allowed cybercriminals associated with the Grief threat actor group to access the personal information of past and present orthopedic patients in the clinic’s database. Examples of the types of data exposed in the leak include name, address, Social Security number, and limited health information.
Unauthorized access to sensitive patient information is commonly used by cybercriminals to commit a number of identity theft crimes. For example, in previous data breaches, patients have had to spend hours monitoring their personal accounts for fraud or pay out of pocket for identity monitoring services. Individuals may have noticed suspicious credit card purchases, unauthorized banking activity in their name, medical procedures ordered without their permission, or disruptions in medical service.
