Quest Diagnostics Data Breach
Quest Diagnostics recently disclosed that one of its third-part vendors experienced a data breach that exposed personal and financial information of nearly 12 million patients. Quest Diagnostics has publically stated that the compromise was discovered by American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), a billing collections service provider used by one of its contractors, Optum360.
In addition to the card information that may have been stolen, other data elements involved in this breach represent permanent markers of an individual's identity. A stolen identity, complete with birth date, Social Security number, and residence information, can be abused in ways that have greater and long-term consequences than stolen card data. A stolen identity may be used to hijack existing bank accounts, obtain new credit or other services, conceal a criminal past, file fraudulent taxes, and even vote.
The credit union possesses no inside information on this data breach, nor do we have knowledge of any direct threat to our institution.
