About this Event
INDIANAPOLIS – Following a data breach this month by Eskenazi Health, Attorney General Todd Rokita is warning Hoosiers, specifically any current or former patients or employees, to watch out for suspicious activity with their accounts and personal information. The time shortly after a breach is a prime opportunity for hackers and scammers to exploit and sell the information they have stolen.
“As with any major breach, Hoosiers should protect and monitor their personal information closely,” Attorney General Rokita said. “Our Office’s Data Privacy and Identify Theft Unit is prepared to direct consumers to data theft resources to combat further damage and prevent additional harm if they become victims of scammers and fraud.”
Attorney General Rokita and the Office of the Indiana Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division offer the following tips as best practices:
Hoosiers are encouraged to contact the Office of the Indiana Attorney General about any suspected fraud, identity theft, scams or scam attempts. Consumers can file a complaint by visiting indianaconsumer.com or calling 1-800-382-5516.
