Florida dental group resends notice of data breach to 1,500 patients

Pembroke Pines, Fla.-based Rosenbaum Dental Group is notifying for a second time 1,522 patients of malware attack that may have exposed their protected health information.

In July, the dental group mailed postcards to patients about the data breach. Rosenbaum Dental Group discovered that patients' names, addresses and other personal information may have been exposed due to the cybersecurity attack.

Now, Rosenbaum Dental Group says that notifying patients through postcards may not have been the appropriate medium.

The dental group said there is no evidence that patient information has been misused. Additionally, Rosenbaum Dental Group believes that no patient information was accessed by unauthorized individuals.
