CSI Laboratories: 2nd Major Breach Within 6 Months


Risk to Business: EXTREME

For the second time in just 6 months, CSI Laboratories has experienced a data breach, this time as a result of a phishing incident in July 2022. In that incident, hackers attempted to commit payment fraud and were able to acquire a large number of files containing patient information. CSI reported the phishing incident on Sept. 26 to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights as affecting 244,850 individuals. The company says that this breach was not related to another data breach that it suffered in March 2022 that affected the data of 312,000 individuals.

Risk to Business: SEVERE

Patient information that may have been compromised in this breach includes documents that may have contained a patient’s name and patient number, and in some cases additional patient information, including date of birth and health insurance information.

Two breaches within six months is a disaster and regulators won’t hesitate to slap down massive fines.
