On June 5, 2019, North Carolina-based medical testing firm, LabCorp, revealed that personal and financial information of more than 7.7 million of its customers had been exposed in a data breach. The compromised information included first names, last names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers, dates of service, names of providers, credit card details, and bank information.
Between August 1, 2018 and March 30, 2019, the web payment page of the American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), Labcorp's third-party billing vendor, was victim to unauthorized activity. AMCA informed LabCorp that it was in the process of notifying affected customers whose personal and financial information may have been stolen, but LabCorp has yet to receive a list of these consumers. The LabCorp news comes just days after a similar breach at AMCA exposed the personal, financial, and medical data of approximately 11.9 million Quest Diagnostics patients.
As soon as the breach was detected, AMCA performed an audit with the help of a third-party cybersecurity forensics firm and took down its web payments page. The company has also notified law authorities and hired an IT security team to investigate the breach.
