Egyptian Health Data Breach Investigation

Egyptian Health Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Egyptian Health Department (“Egyptian Health”) data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 121,995 individuals and their personal information.

Egyptian Health began investigating suspicious activity on its network on December 21, 2023. Through its investigation, Egyptian Health discovered that hackers were able to compromise a significant amount of patient information.  The compromised information includes a variety of highly sensitive details including:

  • full names,
  • Social Security numbers,
  • home addresses,
  • dates of birth
  • phone numbers
  • financial/bank account information

The Egyptian Health Data Breach

The healthcare provider recently began informing individuals of the breach through a mailed notice letter. All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous to affected victims. As is likely to be the case with the Egyptian Health data breach, in previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.
