Allaire Health Services is a care provider that is capable of operating and managing many types of medical facilities. They help with long-term, residential, rehabilitation, and subacute care situations.
Allaire Health Services suffered a data breach toward the end of 2021. The healthcare organization, also known as the Allaire Healthcare Group, made a public statement acknowledging the breach occurred when an unauthorized individual accessed the computer network. The network breach set the stage for hackers to collect sensitive Allaire customer information.
Allaire indicates suspicious activity occurred on an internal email account. The company responded by securing the account and launching an investigation with the guidance of digital forensics and online security professionals.
Allaire representatives only indicated hackers accessed the email account in question along with its attachments in two weeks during November of 2021. The company didn't delve too deeply into the subtleties of the hacking strategy in an attempt to dissuade other criminals from attempting similar heists down the line.
This breach occurred in November 2021.
The breach impacts Allaire customers. The digital criminals behind the attack stole social security numbers, full names of patients, sensitive health information, and more. Allaire contacted victims of the breach through written letters. Allaire, along with other businesses, organizations, and everyday people, are all encouraged to solidify their digital safeguards to avoid similar attacks in the future.
Though this breach occurred in the fall of 2021, Allaire did not reach out to the affected parties until the spring. The company admits hackers illegally accessed more than 13,000 accounts in the breach.
