    Only stupid people put all health care records online, knowing the vulnerability of health care computer systems.

    If they don't have paper backup records, health care providers are SOL when it comes to patient care.

    "...The money will be used to pay for two years of credit monitoring for people affected by the hack, the lawyers said. Victims are believed to include current and former customers of Anthem and of other insurers affiliated with Anthem through the national Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

    People who are already enrolled in credit monitoring may choose to receive cash instead, which may be up to $50 per person, according to a motion filed in California federal court Friday..."

    [50$ X 78.8 Mil = $115 Mil. What o_O Oh, I get it -- which may be up to $50 per person.]

    "...' We are very satisfied that the settlement is a great result for those affected and look forward to working through the settlement approval process,' Andrew Friedman, a lawyer for the victims, said in a statement..."

    [hawki is very certain he is 'VERY' satisfied -- his law firm will likely be sweeping 30% of the take off the table.]

    UPDATE:

    "MINISTER: Medicare data breach wasn't a cyberattack, but 'traditional criminal activity'

    Minister for human services Alan Tudge has claimed the black market sale of personal data did not come from an electronic intrusion of Medicare systems, but rather 'traditional criminal activity'..."

    I guess that makes it better or something. o_O

    "Hackers demanded nearly $30,000 from Buffalo hospital; cost almost $10M to fix the problem...

    ...officials estimate expenses tied to the incident were nearly $10 million.

    About half of that amount is for computer hardware, software and assistance needed in the response. The other half represents a combination of increased expenses, such as for staff overtime pay, and lower revenues from the loss of business during the system down time.

    That's just the costs related to the incident. Going forward, medical center officials also anticipate an ongoing additional expense of $250,000 to $400,000 a month for investments in upgraded technology and employee education to harden its computer system defenses to reduce the risk and impact of future attacks..."
