In July 2023, Example Healthcare Inc. reported a significant data breach impacting 600,000 individuals. The breach was traced back to a sophisticated malware attack that exploited an unpatched vulnerability in the company's email system. Personal health information, including medical histories, health insurance details, and personally identifiable information (PII) such as names, addresses, and Social Security numbers were compromised. The breach was discovered when abnormal activities were detected by the internal security systems, prompting an immediate investigation. The company has since taken measures to reinforce its cyber defenses, including the deployment of advanced malware detection tools and employee training programs to recognize phishing attempts.
