Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the North Carolina-based Benson Health (“Benson”) (formerly known as Benson Area Medical Center), which recently notified patients that their highly sensitive personally identifiable and protected health information was accessed by an unauthorized third-party in or around May 5, 2022. The impacted information includes patient names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and health/treatment information.
Benson Health only recently began notifying victims of the data breach. Due to this lapse in time between the data breach, the notice to affected individuals, and the prolonged access the unauthorized cybercriminal(s) had to the impacted information, hackers may have already been able to sell the data and/or otherwise benefit from the fraudulent misuse of such information. Some individuals affected by the data breach may have already noticed (or may soon notice) one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to their personal and health information: unauthorized credit card inquiries and/or charges, requests for loans or benefits in a patient’s name without their consent, fake medical procedures ordered, and/or disrupted use of the institution’s website.
