Directions Newsletter - Anthem is the Target of a Cyber Attack

Anthem was recently the target of a very sophisticated external cyber attack. The attackers gained unauthorized access to Anthem's IT system and obtained personal information from their current and former members, including: names; birthdays; member ID/Social Security numbers; mailing addresses; email addresses; and employment information, such as, income data. Based on what Anthem is currently reporting, there is no indication that banking, credit card or medical information (such as claims data, test results, or diagnostic codes) was targeted or compromised. As we learn more, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. will update our Directions newsletters accordingly, or send out a special alert if warranted.
