According to Healthitsecurity.com, Baton Rouge-based General Health System (GHS) had a health care data breach in June. GHS has more than 20 locations in the Baton Rouge area.
According to the Baton Rouge General website, “On June 28, 2022, GHS became aware of suspicious activity related to certain GHS computer systems. GHS immediately launched an investigation, with the assistance of third-party forensic specialists, to determine the nature and scope of the activity. Through the investigation, it was determined that there was unauthorized access to GHS’s network between June 24, 2022 to June 29, 2022. The unauthorized actor had the ability to access certain directories while on the network. Therefore, GHS is undertaking a comprehensive review of the contents of the directories determined to be at risk to assess what sensitive information was contained within them and to whom the information related. GHS’s review is ongoing and once completed GHS intends to mail notice letters to potentially affected individuals.”
