In addition to notifying individuals whose personal information may have been involved, UC San Diego Health has taken remediation measures, which have included, among other steps, changing employee credentials, disabling access points, and enhancing our security processes and procedures. While we have a number of safeguards in place to protect information from unauthorized access, we are also always working to strengthen them so we can stay ahead of this type of threat activity.

It is always a good idea to remain alert to threats of identity theft or fraud. You can do this by regularly reviewing and monitoring your financial statements, credit reports, and Explanations of Benefits (EOBs) from your health insurers for any unauthorized activity. If you ever suspect that you are the victim of identity theft or fraud, you should contact the company that maintains the account on your behalf or your local police.
