Integris, St. Anthony patients hacked: more ID theft fraud alerts
The Norman Transcript
Last week, we looked at placing “fraud alerts” at various federal agencies, financial institutions, creditors, real estate concerns and public utilities. Those were the next steps to take after placing account “freezes” at all four major credit bureaus.
These actions are all taken in response to how patients of both Integris and SSM St. Anthony hospitals have been victimized by Internet criminals hacking the hospital’s poorly-secured computer networks, creating a full-on bona fide identity theft crisis that cannot be minimized or ignored. The personally identifiable information (PII) of millions of people has been stolen, the type of information criminals use to steal tons of money.
