Empire / Anthem Website Breach Update 2/13/15

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE ANTHEM CYBER HACK
There is updated info on the EMHP website ( www.emhp.org/home) ref the recent cyber-attack involving Anthem, parent company of Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield (EBCBS). Info on the website includes frequently asked questions and information on enrolling for two years of free credit monitoring and identity theft repair services. I encourage everyone to visit the EMHP website and review this information.
I would also like to emphasis that EBCBS will NOT be reaching out to anyone via email or phone. If or when they identify individuals or groups that have been compromised they will be notifying those individuals via US mail. If you receive an email or phone call alleging to be from Anthem or EBCBS looking for info it is a phishing scam. Do Not Respond.
Fraternally,

Blue Cross Website Hacked

As you may have heard, Anthem, the parent company of Empire BlueCross BlueShield (EBCBS), Suffolk County EMHP’s hospital and medical administrator, was the victim of a highly-sophisticated cyber-attack. EBCBS has informed EMHP that its member data was accessed and it could include that of Suffolk County employees.
There is further information including a memo with frequently asked questions on the Suffolk County EMHP website at www.emhp.org/Home .
IMPORTANT: As EBCBS identifies those members whose data may have been compromised they will be notifying those members via US mail. They are NOT notifying members via email or phone. If you receive an email or phone call alleging to be from Anthem or Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield it is a phishing scam. DO NOT respond or give any further info to any such requests.
Please refer to the EMHP website for the latest info. The SOA office does not have any additional info. If I get more info I will pass it along ASAP.
Fraternally,
