Scripps begins notifying more than 147,000 people of ransomware records breach

Paul Sisson reports:

Scripps Health announced Tuesday that it has begun notifying nearly 150,000 individuals that their personal information was stolen by hackers during the ransomware attack that hit the local health care giant on May 1.

In a statement, San Diego’s second-largest medical provider says that it is “beginning to mail notification letters to approximately 147,267 individuals so they can take steps to protect their information.” About 2.5 percent of those — nearly 3,700 — are said to have had their Social Security and/or driver’s license numbers taken. For those, the company said, it will provide “complementary credit monitoring and identity protection support services.”
