Anthem Security Breach Update
We received another update from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa) regarding the Anthem Cyber Attack. If you have given Anthem or BCBSGa your email address, you will receive an email within the next week about identity protection and credit monitoring services. Anthem is required to send this email due to state laws around breach notifications.
Emails began being distributed on Feb. 18 at 8 a.m. The process will continue throughout the week until all emails have been delivered. Depending on the timing, members could receive the email as early as today or sometime next week. They are sending approximately one million emails per day.
The subject line of the email will be “Important Message From Anthem, Inc.” and it will direct members to visit AnthemFacts.com to sign up for credit protection services. The email will not ask for personal information and will not reference any other web site. Anthem will mail the notification via the US Postal service to members who do not have an e-mail address on file.
