Health Net suffers massive data breach
Health Net is conducting an investigation into several server drives that are unaccounted for from its data center operation located in Rancho Cordova, Calif.
This investigation follows notification by IBM, Health Net’s vendor responsible for managing Health Net’s IT infrastructure, that it could not locate several server drives.
After a forensic analysis, Health Net has determined that personal information of some former and current Health Net members, employees and health care providers is on the drives, and may include names, addresses, health information, Social Security numbers and/or financial information.
To help protect the personal information of affected individuals, Health Net is offering them two years of free credit monitoring services, including fraud resolution and, if necessary, restoration of credit files, as well as identity theft insurance. These services will be provided through the Debix Identity Protection Network.
