Stolen USB Drive Exposes 2,962 Humana Members' Personal Data
The drive contained the members' names and Social Security numbers, along with some medical information.
WXIA reports that managed health care company Humana is notifying 2,962 of its members that their personal information may have been exposed when an unencrypted USB drive and an encrypted laptop were stolen from an Atlanta-area employee's vehicle (h/t Becker's Hospital CIO).
Data on the unencrypted drive included the affected Humana members' names and Social Security numbers, along with some medical information.
While the company says it "has no reason to believe that the information has been used inappropriately," all those affected are being offered free access to a credit monitoring service.
Humana members with questions who are enrolled in Medicare plans are advised to contact the company at (800) 457-4708, while those enrolled in non-Medicare plans are advised to contact (800) 448-6262.
