Advice to Victims of HSHS Prevea Cyber Security Incident

I was interviewed last week Monday Aug. 28th, 2023 by Green Bay TV station WLUK-TV FOX 11 for a story Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) and Prevea Health Systems was calling at the time a system outage. Late Friday afternoon, the CEOs of HSHS and Prevea released a joint video confirming that it was caused by a cyber security incident. In the video, they stated that their priority was patient care, but they did not say whether patient (or employee) data was impacted by the cyber-attack.

I was interviewed again on Tuesday Sept. 5th, 2023 where I recommend that all past and current patients, as well as all past and current employees take proactive action and freeze their credit with the three credit reporting agencies Transunion, Equifax and Experian. They should also consider using a credit monitoring service, and monitor all healthcare invoices and explanation of benefits for fraudulent activity.

Other organizations have offered to pay for one year of credit monitoring services when their customers personally identifiable information (PII) was compromised. This is not an acceptable solution as the criminals have your PII such as your social security number, which does not expire, and they will wait sometimes months before using it for identity theft purposes.
