Cogdell Memorial Hospital Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod is involved in the Cogdell Memorial Hospital data breach investigation.

Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Scurry County Hospital District, d/b/a/ Cogdell Memorial Hospital data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 85,000+ individuals and their personal information.

On or about October 10, 2023, Cogdell Memorial Hospital discovered a cyberattack event by which unauthorized access to its data was obtained. Cogdell Memorial Hospital is not able to identify specific information that was leaked for each individual. Any individual who has been notified that their information might have been compromised should exercise the utmost caution in securing and maintaining their identity.

The impacted information includes:

  • Name
  • Social Security number
  • Driver’s License number
  • Date of birth
  • Health information
  • Medical record numbers
  • Medical treatment information

Cogdell Memorial Hospital recently began informing individuals of this breach through notice on their website, posted on February 23, 2024. All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous to affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts. These range from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name. Often hackers post information on the dark web, leading to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.

These attacks can last for many years after a data breach occurs. Individuals will have to be vigilant to prevent unauthorized use of their identity. Consider working with Migliaccio and Rathod in our data breach investigation.
