What is the Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Data Breach All About?
Did you receive a data breach notice letter from Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery? If so, your sensitive personal identifiable information may have been stolen and you may be owed compensation.
Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (“FOMS”) is based in Fairfax, Virginia. Recently, Fairfax Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery sent out notice letters notifying individuals that their personal information had been compromised in a breach of the FOMS computer network. The information stolen by hackers may include personally sensitive and identifiable information such as:
• Patients Full Names,
• Driver's License Numbers,
• Health Insurance Information,
• Private Medical History.
Healthcare companies in particular are being increasingly targeted by bad actors looking to steal data for financial gain. A health record is worth far more money on the dark web than even credit card numbers and Social Security numbers. This particular security incident exposed the sensitive information of 206,944 people affiliated with FOMS.
Data breaches are serious matters that can cause long term damage, especially health care related data breaches. Hackers break into networks so that they can steal your personal information to sell it on the dark web, commit identity theft, financial theft or other frauds. The theft of sensitive, protected health information, and personally identifiable information can lead to a plethora of problems for individuals who are the victims of data breaches that occurred in databases they were not even aware of. Typically, the individual that may have been hacked includes the following:
• Social Security Number,
• Financial Information,
• Protected Health Information,
• Medical Information,
• Other PII (Personally Identifiable Information)
Data breaches can also result in a long-term damage to personal data privacy, as the hacked personally identifiable information may be traded or shared amongst cyber-criminals for years to come, on the internet, the dark web, or elsewhere. This significantly increases the risk of further identity theft, financial fraud and problems for unwitting victims of large data breaches.
