However, the extent of the misuse of data is unknown.
The University of Iowa Health Care (UIHC) has notified thousands of patients of a data breach that exposed their personal and medical information.
On 22 June, UIHC sent out notification letters to 5,300 patients affected by the data breach. The University explains in these letters that it has not found any evidence suggesting bad actors misused patients’ information. It also reveals that the security event didn’t affect certain bits of data like diagnoses, Social Security Numbers, and credit card information.
UIHC has issued a privacy notice about the event here.
