Hackers Breach Network of LabCorp, US’ Biggest Blood Testing Laboratories
NEWS: LabCorp, the US’ biggest blood testing laboratories network, announced on Monday that hackers breached its IT network over the weekend.
According to Robert Capps, Vice President of Business Development, NuData Security, a Mastercard company, “Medical records are highly trafficked on the dark web for fraud. Customers may find that fraudulent healthcare services and diagnostics are often attached to their permanent healthcare record; and that coverage limits have been reached – which can lead to compromised or delayed care. This is why leading organizations are evaluating security strategies that move beyond the outdated password/username model to a multi-layered solution that includes passive biometrics and behavioral analytics to better protect patients and devalue stolen data.”
