Pennsylvania Judge Rules UPMC Must Protect Employee Data

The state Supreme Court found UPMC is responsible for safeguarding employee data in the wake of 2014 breach.


- The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last week that the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is responsible for protecting personal employee data from hackers: The latest in a lengthy class-action lawsuit filed by UPMC employees against the health system in 2014.

The decision overturns two initial rulings from lower courts that initially threw out the case.

UPMC employees sued the health system in 2014 for breach of contract, after a breach of employee data. Hackers stole the personal information, including bank account data, Social Security numbers and tax information, and proceeded to use the data to file fraudulent tax returns to receive tax refunds.

Synthetic Identity Theft: Why You Should Be Concerned


In a recent study, researchers found that synthetic identity theft makes up about 85% of all identity theft and it has an annual cost of $2 billion. 


Synthetic identity theft involves the use of a ficticious identity. There are multiple ways the fraudsters can create a fake identity, with the most common form using a real social security number, combined with other fake information.


The rise of this crime has been in the thousands recently, as compared to the hundreds not more than five years ago. 


Here is an excerpt from a SecurityItelligence article:


"The exponential growth of synthetic identity theft — and particularly its impact on children’s identities — will have distressing consequences for young individuals in the future. A study performed by Carnegie Mellon’s CyLab found that children’s SSNs are 51 times more likely to be used in a synthetic fraud scheme than those of adults for the population studied. While CyLab clearly stated its findings could not be extrapolated to the general population, the threat to children is evident.


Synthetic identity thieves target children’s SSNs because they are inactive and will generally remain unchecked for up to 18 years. Children generally have no public information associated with their SSN, making them a prime target. Unless a victimized minor’s parents are tipped off by a bill collector, the child begins receiving credit card offers in the mail or the child is denied a driver’s license or college loan, the fraud may not be discovered."

Threat Spotlight: Real-World Spear Phishing, Initiating the Attack and Email Spoofing


Countless individuals and organizations have unwittingly wired money, sent W2s, and emailed credentials to cyber criminals who were impersonating their boss, colleague, or a trusted customer. Spear phishing attacks can have devastating results for individuals, businesses, and brands, and unfortunately, they work because they are so simple and believable. A successful attack doesn’t require advanced hacking techniques, but rather gathering information about you that’s already posted online and spending five minutes to write a well-crafted email. The attackers can pick up information about their targets from a variety of sources: whether it’s posted on LinkedIn, Facebook, or on the company blog.


Spear phishing is something we’ve become very familiar with at Barracuda, as we have over a decade-long history of studying email-borne threats and the overall cyber threat landscape. Over the last year, we have spent a lot of time researching and analyzing highly-personalized spear phishing attacks.
