HealthEquity: Data breach exposes 23.000 customer data

A new data breach occurred on April 11 in an insurance company with millions of customers. Last week, a HealthEquity employee's email was infringed by someone unknown. Two days later the violation was discovered and she contacted another company dealing with forensic email. HealthEquity said it would provide 5es with free theft protection and credit monitoring services to all data leaked.

HealthEquity data breach

The company said the information leaked through the email included company names and ID 23.000 employees. There was also information about various customer accounts, billing, and identification numbers.

Tim Erlin, a security researcher, said "The medical industry is becoming a growing target for cyber attacks because of the valuable value of its information." "The biggest risk for those affected is identity theft as their identity numbers have been stolen, and the use of sensitive items by third parties is likely. HealthEquity seems to have grasped the situation as it will provide many years of free online monitoring to those who have been affected. The fact that the violation was discovered just 2 days later than the day it was made shows that the company is paying attention to its infrastructure! "

Also, that health providers are so vulnerable to attacks, with the result that citizens can leak out so easily and later resell to Dark web , is extremely worrying. This industry maintains very sensitive and private data, and unfortunately is prone to a wide range of attacks.
