Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas Notice of Security Incident

This morning’s reminder that it’s not just HIPAA covered entities or business associates that may be exposing your medical information to a breach.

Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas (“VOACC”) announced today a phishing email incident that involved a small number of email accounts in its computer environment.

The phishing email incident resulted in unauthorized access to information contained in some email accounts, including names accompanied by Social Security numbers, financial/checking account numbers, payment card numbers, driver’s license numbers, and limited medical/health information.

Although VOACC cannot confirm that any individual’s information was in fact viewed by an unauthorized person, and has no indication that anyone’s information has been misused, VOACC is releasing this notice to inform individuals of this incident and provide some recommendations on ways to protect personal information.
