HCA Healthcare is a major technical service provider for healthcare companies. The organization manages huge amounts of information, and all that data makes the company vulnerable to attack. The network recently suffered from a data breach, potentially putting millions at risk.
Hackers broke into one of the exterior servers at HCA Healthcare and stole 27 million rows of data from the company. This is a huge data loss that could impact millions of patients whose information was kept on this provider's server.
The data breach occurred sometime in the last few months. The company noted the breach recently and explained the situation when talking to InnovationRx, a healthcare news provider.
This HVA Healthcare breach will impact more than 11 million patients that have their data stored on its servers. These patients are from many different healthcare providers and will have to wait until the company sends them a personalized letter to learn more about the situation. If you receive a letter from the company, you'll know more about what data was taken and how the attack occurred.
We don't have the details about the HCA Healthcare files taken in this particular breach. We only know that the company was hacked and that a huge number of database entries were removed. We suspect the number of files was small, but the files were large in size.
