Violation of personal medical data from the Health Insurance (Ameli)

Medical Personal Data Breach (Ameli)

Health Insurance (Ameli) was the victim of a computer attack which led to a violation of the personal medical data of 510,000 French people. Health Insurance has filed a complaint and the people concerned will be gradually informed.
Personal data means information likely to directly or indirectly identify a person (name, postal or e-mail address, telephone number, social security number, etc.).
A personal data breach is the unauthorized access or disclosure of personal data held by a third party (websites or online services, companies, associations, communities, administrations). The origin of this violation can be accidental or malicious.
Depending on the case and the nature of the information disclosed and if this information is recovered by cybercriminals, a breach of personal data can have multiple possible consequences for the person who is the victim: targeted phishing or attempted fraud, extortion, breach of image or reputation, identity theft, cyberbullying, or even attempts to hack online accounts belonging to him.
