Chilton Medical Center

Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains reported that an employee removed a computer hard drive from their facility and sold it online in October. The hard drive contained the information of patients treated at the medical center over the last decade and may have included names, dates of birth, addresses, medical record numbers, allergies, and information regarding medications the patient may have received. According to the hospital, Social Security numbers, financial information, and medical records were not present on the hard drive. The NJCCIC recommends patients remain vigilant as the personal information leaked may be used by threat actors to craft clever and convincing spear-phishing campaigns designed to trick users into divulging additional sensitive information.
