Almost 12 million people who have used Quest Diagnostics for lab testing may have had their accounts compromised.
AMCA in May notified Optum360 and Quest that an unauthorized user had accessed the company's web payment system, including data on roughly 11.9 million Quest patients. "Since learning of the AMCA data security incident, we have suspended sending collection requests to AMCA", Quest said. No laboratory test results were involved.
AMCA did not provide Quest with detailed or complete information on the breach, including who may have been affected, according to Quest. On Friday morning, the Marriott Corporation acknowledged there had been a massive data security breach involving the Starwood guest reservation database that occurred on or before September 10, 2018 that dated as far back as 2014. An outside security expert has been hired to determine the damage of the breach.
Darren Hayes, Assistant Professor at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, said the announcement by Quest comes as no surprise "as healthcare records command higher prices on the black market than most types of personal identifiable information".
