Data Breach Investigation

Data Breach Details

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Group Health Cooperative of South Central WI data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 533,809 individuals and their personal information.

On or about January 24, 2024, Group Health Cooperative of South Central WI (Group Health Cooperative) experienced a hacking event by which unauthorized access to its data was obtained. Group Health Cooperative discovered the suspicious activity on its servers on or about January 25, 2024.  The impacted information includes:

  • Name
  • Social Security Number

Impact of Data Breaches

Group Health Cooperative informed individuals of this breach through a mailed notice, delivered on or about February 9, 2024. It appears that the company updated their data breach notices and sent a finalized version on or around March 29, 2024.

All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous if adversely used against affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft noticed identity theft attempts ranging from:

  • fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards;
  • unauthorized credit card applications;
  • medical services or government services ordered in their name;
  • their information being posted on the dark web;
  • a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received;

Though credit monitoring is offered, any amount less than a lifetime of protection is simply inadequate. Data breaches present a lifetime of risk. Additionally, fraud and identity theft attempts or attacks can happen for many years following a data breach. Furthermore, individuals impacted by data breaches should remain vigilant, such as by closely monitoring their accounts, changing passwords, and acting quickly to prevent or minimize fraud once it has occurred.
