EmCare data breach exposes 60,000 employees, patients (Breaches and Incidents)

Home > Security News > Data Breach EmCare Inc. suffered a data breach after several employee email accounts were accessed by an unauthorized entity, resulting in the compromise of up to 60,000 individuals’ information. The Dallas-based company, which provides physician services, said in a statement that it determined the hacked emails contained patients’, employees’ and contractors’ personal information. The exposed data included names and birth dates or ages and, for some patients, clinical information. EmCare says it determined the contents of the affected email accounts on Feb. 19, 2019. In addition, EmCare is not aware of any individual who has been impacted by fraud or identity theft as a result and does not know if any personal information was actually obtained by an unauthorized party,” Emcare said in a statement. EmCare is providing Experian’s IdentityWorks credit monitoring and identity protection services to those whose Social Security numbers and driver’s license information was exposed.
