IDOH: Contact Tracing Data Improperly Accessed, Risk “Low’ For 750K Affected

Aug 19, 2021

The Indiana Department of Health will notify nearly 750,000 Hoosiers that data from the state’s COVID-19 online contact tracing survey was improperly accessed. The data included name, address, email, date of birth and demographic information collected during contact tracing.

Multiple families have brought suit against Indianapolis-based education service company Herff Jones following a data breach that left customers’ personal and financial information unprotected. 

Nearly 4 million Hoosiers could be eligible for money from credit bureau Equifax after a 2017 data breach – but they have until Dec. 16 to file a claim.
