What Happened?

Norton Healthcare, a leading healthcare provider with over 40 hospitals and clinics in Kentucky, Louisville, and Southern Indiana, delivers adult, pediatric, and specialized care.

In May 2023, a ransomware attack targeted Norton Healthcare. Subsequent investigations revealed that an unauthorized entity gained access to network storage devices between May 7, 2023 and May 9, 2023. It has been confirmed that, during this unauthorized access, certain private data was either viewed or extracted from specific computer systems within the Norton Healthcare network. The attackers successfully infiltrated the system, potentially exfiltrating data belonging to more than 2.5 million patients, employees, and employees’ dependents.

On December 8, 2023, Norton Healthcare filed a notice of a data breach with the Attorney General of Maine and issued a press release to announce the breach. Norton Healthcare stated that it is currently in the process of sending letters to individuals who may have been impacted by the incident.
