Summary
Geisinger Health System experienced a significant data breach affecting over 1.2 million patient records, involving unauthorized access by a terminated employee of Nuance Communications, a Microsoft subsidiary. The breach, discovered after the employee's dismissal in November 2023, prompted a delayed notification to patients due to a federal investigation. Stolen data includes personal information but not care details or social security numbers. Geisinger is offering identity protection services and is cooperating with authorities as the former employee faces federal charges. Geisinger emphasizes the importance of patient privacy and continues to address the incident.
