EMSA experienced a cyber intrusion between February 10 and February 13, 2024, leading to unauthorized access to its network. Files containing sensitive patient information were acquired, affecting 611,743 individuals. Compromised data included names, addresses, dates of birth, service dates, as well as primary care providers and social security numbers for some. This breach disrupted EMSA's services, leaving the community temporarily without essential medical support. EMSA is undertaking measures to enhance security and offering credit monitoring and identity protection for affected individuals.
