Zoll Medical said today that it experienced a data breach during an email server migration that exposed select confidential patient data.
The data exposed included patient names, addresses, dates of birth, limited medical information and some social security numbers, the Chelmsford, Mass.-based company said.
Zoll said that its email is archived by a third-party service provider and that during a server migration, some data from Zoll emails were exposed. The incident is believed to have occurred between November 8, 2018 and December 28, 2018.
The company said that it has now secured all information and that it is not aware of any fraud or identity theft as a result of the breach. It added that it initiated an internal review from an independent forensics firm and that it appropriately notified law enforcement and federal and state agencies.
Zoll said that as a result of the exposure, it is taking steps to review the process for managing third party vendors and that it is offering free credit and identity monitoring services for a year to affected individuals, according to a press release.
Earlier this month, Zoll said that it acquired privately held healthcare-focused Golden Hour Data Systems for an undisclosed amount.
