Anthem had an unprecedented data breach that occurred this morning. This is the largest healthcare related data breach of all time with over 80 Million records stolen. Anthem has created a website, Amerifacts.com, to give individuals one central location for information about the incident. Between the website, swift notification of the authorities and quickly hiring an outside consulting firm to handle the breach & discovery Anthem has become a model of how a breach should be handled upon discovery.
