INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) – Attorney General Curtis Hill and 29 other attorneys general filed a settlement requiring Premera Blue Cross to pay $10 million over its failure to secure sensitive consumer data.
Indiana will receive over $43,000.
Hill said Premera’s insufficient data security enabled a hacker to access protected health information from the largest health insurance company in the Pacific Northwest.
“Data breaches such as this one cause real harm to real people,” Attorney General Hill said. “We must continue to hold companies accountable for their actions and make sure they uphold their responsibility to keep private information safe and secure.”
