Shields Health Care Group Hack

Shields Health Care Group, a Massachusetts-based company involved with imaging and health management services, recently announced a major hack that may have exposed sensitive information for up to two million people in their database. The company claims there isn’t any evidence of identity theft from the incident, however both Shields Health Care Group and federal law enforcement are still exploring the incident.

The Quincy-based imaging company has approximately 40 locations, mostly in Massachusetts but also in New Hampshire and Maine.

Shields also included a list of dozens of facility partners that may have been affected, including Tufts Medical Center, Central Maine Medical Center and UMass Memorial. Federal law enforcement currently has no comment on the attack. Earlier in June, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Boston College cybersecurity conference that the agency had thwarted a planned attack on Boston Children’s Hospital that was to have been carried out by hackers sponsored by the Iranian government.

Shield HealthCare is Secure

Shield HealthCare’s systems and data are fully secure. Shield HealthCare, a leading provider of incontinence, urological, enteral nutrition, advanced wound care, diabetes and ostomy supplies since 1957, was not involved in this incident.
