Data breach at Premera Blue Cross in the Pacific Northwest
On March 17, 2015, Premera Blue Cross announced that it was the target of a cyber attack that affected as many as 11 million people. This is a similar attack to the Anthem cyber attack. The incident affected Premera Blue Cross, the Blue Plan in Washington, Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska, and their affiliate brands Vivacity and Connexion Insurance Solutions, Inc.
Primarily affected members residing in Washington (state) and Alaska. However, like the Anthem cyber attack, anyone on Anthem Blue Cross CA or Blue Shield of California plan who received services in a Premera area under the BlueCard PPO program may also be compromised.
