Non-profit health insurer Point32Health has taken systems offline in response to a ransomware attack that took place on April 17. The insurer immediately launched an investigation into the incident with the help of third-party cybersecurity experts to determine the extent of the incident.
The organization notified law enforcement and regulators, and it is currently working to recover the operations.
“On April 17, Point32Health identified a cybersecurity ransomware incident that impacted systems we use to service members, accounts, brokers and providers. At this time, most systems impacted are on the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care side of our business. After detecting the unauthorized party, and out of an abundance of caution, we proactively took certain systems offline to contain the threat.” reads the statement published by the insurer.
Most impacted systems are related to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, which a few days ago announced on Facebook that it was experiencing technical issues with its website and phone lines.
The company did not provide details about the attack, such as the family of ransomware that compromised its systems and the number of impacted individuals.
