Town Hall meeting scheduled on Anthem cyber attack
Last week, Anthem informed us that their company was the target of a sophisticated cyber attack. This resulted in unauthorized access to its members’ personal information. The investigation into the security breach is ongoing. We know many of you want information and have questions about this attack. To review what Anthem knows and share with you what they are doing at this point, please join them for a town hall meeting Feb. 17.
Ken Goulet, president of Anthem’s Commercial and Specialty Business, will address member concerns and discuss the risks to its customers. Members will then hear from Anthem’s IT leadership, who will go over details of the incident and explain how they’re working with federal agencies, what they’re are doing internally, and who was impacted.
