Notice of Data Security Event

Nov 15, 2019 | News

Birmingham, AL. CAH Holdings Inc. (CAH) recently learned of a data security incident involving some employee email accounts that may have impacted a limited amount of personally identifiable information and protected health information (PHI).

To assist with the investigation, CAH hired independent computer forensic experts to determine what occurred, and what information may be at risk. The forensic investigation determined that an unauthorized actor gained access to some of its corporate email accounts. Unfortunately, the investigators were unable to identify what emails or attachments may have been viewed by the unauthorized actor.

CAH reviewed the contents of the email accounts, and determined that limited information related to names, medical treatment history and diagnoses, and health benefits was contained in the accounts. For a limited number of individuals, addresses, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers were also included. 

Although we are not aware of any misuse of any information, as an added precaution, we are offering, at no cost to the individual, credit monitoring and identity theft protection through ID Experts®. This product provides credit monitoring, identity detection, and resolution of identity theft. Please note that this offer is available for one-year from the date of enrollment.

CAH has taken steps to prevent this type of incident from happening in the future.

We retrained all our employees on cybersecurity and recognizing and responding to suspicious emails. We continually review our training program to ensure it is up to date.
