[CORRECTED] Peoples Injury Network Northwest notifies patients of ransomware incident
Like so many other ransomware incidents we’ve read about in the past year, investigators were not able to conclusively determine that patient data had not been accessed or exfiltrated. As a result, the Peoples Injury Network Northwest (PINN) of Washington recently notified 12,502 Washington residents that their data was potentially at risk from an April 22 ransomware attack that infected three of their servers. The data potentially at risk included patients’ diagnosis information, names, addresses, dates of birth, and driver’s liense numbers.

Name of entity CORRECTED on Sept. 25 to “Peoples Injury Network Northwest.” For some reason, my brain took a break without me yesterday and I kept typing “personal” instead of “peoples.” Thanks to the reader who alerted me to my error. — Dissent
