Phishing and other hacking incidents have led to several recently reported large health data breaches, including one that UConn Health reports affected 326,000 individuals.

In describing a phishing attack, UConn Health says that on Dec. 24, 2018, it determined that an unauthorized third party illegally accessed a limited number of employee email accounts containing patient information, including some individuals' names, dates of birth, addresses and limited medical information, such as billing and appointment information. The accounts also contained the Social Security numbers of some individuals.
