AspenPointe, a nonprofit mental health and behavioral health services provider based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, experienced a cyberattack in September 2020 that resulted in the exposure of protected health information (PHI) on more than 295,000 patients. Due to the attack, the healthcare provider had to take its systems offline, which disrupted operations for several days. An investigation of the incident revealed that cybercriminals accessed patient data, including full names, dates of birth, driver's license numbers, bank account information, Social Security numbers, diagnosis codes, admission dates, and more. AspenPointe is now notifying patients about the cyberattack and offering those affected 12 months of complimentary identity theft protection services and a $1M insurance reimbursement policy. This article continues to discuss the impact of the AspenPointe data breach and the healthcare provider's response to this incident.
