The country’s second-largest health insurer has announced hackers accessed and obtained tens of millions of current and former customer and employee accounts, Bloomberg reports. Compromised data includes names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, contact information and other employee data. In a public letter, Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish, himself a victim of the hack, said, “As soon as we learned about the attack, we immediately made every effort to close the security vulnerability, contacted the FBI and began fully cooperating with their investigation.” Anthem has provided customers with an AnthemFacts.com web page, complete with Swedish’s letter, FAQs and a tab to ask questions. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said, “This attack is another reminder of the persistent threats we face.”
