Another day, Another data breach!

This time-sensitive and personal data of hundreds of thousands of people at Boys Town National Research Hospital have been exposed in what appears to be the largest ever reported breach by a pediatric care provider or children’s hospital.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights, the breach incident affected 105,309 individuals, including patients and employees, at the Omaha-based medical organization.

In a “Notice of Data Security Incident” published on its website, the Boys Town National Research Hospital admitted that the organisation became aware of an abnormal behaviour regarding one of its employees’ email account on May 23, 2018.
