Important Website Notification of Data Security Incident
As part of our commitment, we are sharing a recent security incident about unauthorized access to one employee’s mobile email account and the steps we took to protect our members.
On July 11, 2023, Prime became aware that an unauthorized actor obtained access to an employee’s mobile email account. Although we have no indication that the actor did so, it is possible that the unauthorized actor accessed a document that included personal health information of a limited number of our client’s members of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. The unauthorized access began on July 9, 2023, and ended on July 10, 2023.
What Personal Information Was Involved
The personal information that could have been accessed by the unauthorized actor included member name, address, date of birth, member ID number and medication(s). At this point, Prime is not aware of any fraud or misuse of personal information as a result of this incident.
What We Are Doing
Upon discovery of this incident, Prime immediately conducted a comprehensive investigation into this matter and disabled the compromised credentials. Prime has blacklisted the unauthorized actor’s IP addresses and established monitoring for any future login attempts. Prime will continue to review internal procedures for potential improvements to strengthen account security, reinforce its existing policies and practices, and evaluate additional safeguards to help prevent a similar incident from reoccurring.
