Sav-Rx Data Breach Exposes PII Including Social Security Numbers

On October 8, 2023, A&A Services d/b/a Sav-Rx experienced a significant disruption to their computer network, which was identified as a data breach. The company's IT systems were compromised, allowing an unauthorized third party to access and potentially acquire sensitive data, affecting 67,341 people in the state of Texas alone. The breach was detected promptly, and the IT systems were restored the following business day, ensuring that prescription services were not delayed. However, the forensic investigation revealed that the breach initially occurred around October 3, 2023, and the unauthorized access involved certain non-clinical systems containing health information.

Information Exposed

The data accessed during the incident included a range of personal information:

  • Name of individual
  • Address
  • Social Security Number Information
  • Health Insurance Information
  • Date of Birth

Sav-Rx's Response

Following the discovery of the data breach, Sav-Rx took immediate steps to secure their systems and mitigate any potential impact. The company engaged with third-party cybersecurity experts to contain the incident and ensure that any data acquired was destroyed and not further disseminated. Sav-Rx has also enhanced their security protocols, technology, and employee training to prevent future breaches. Law enforcement authorities were promptly notified, and the company has been cooperating with investigations.
