National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners Data Breach Investigation
Shub & Johns LLC is currently investigating National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (“NBOME”) for an apparent failure to safeguard sensitive consumer information in a data breach that was detected on or around February 14, 2023. NBOME, an Illinois-based healthcare system specializing in Osteopathics, discovered that an unauthorized actor gained access to client data within NBOME’s systems. Through further investigation, it was determined that the breach took place between February 1, 2023 and February 13, 2023.
Though the data security breach was discovered in February of 2023, the Company only concluded its investigation on January 4, 2024 and only began notifying affected individuals on or around January 31, 2024 after submitting a notice to the Vermont Attorney General. NBOME has not indicated the approximate number of individuals impacted by the breach. The company has also not indicated what consumer information has been impacted. Generaly, consumer information exposed in the breach may vary but can include names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers, health information, health insurance information, and employment information.
The cybercriminals responsible for the breach may have already obtained and sold the compromised consumer information. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, medical and/or government services ordered in their name, or their information being posted on the dark web.
