Nationwide Insurance suffers data loss

By vmunster     Jan 25, 2007 in Crime
Healthcare really needs a wakeup call when it comes to security.
There's a story about Nationwide Insurance who suffered a data breach in late October last year but just now informed their customers about it. Read more about it here
It just reminds me of lots of the security issues that the healthcare industry is facing today. If you think about it, they have all of our personal information as well as enough data of those close to us for emergency contact, guardianship and such...It's a gold mine for people who make a living out of stealing other people's identities.
It pains me to hear yet another story about about another health insurance company who regretably did not take precautions to ensure that their customer's information stays protected.
