Central Ohio Urology Group is informing individuals about a data security incident. An unauthorized individual posted files and documents to an online drive accessible on the Internet that appear to have been maintained on Central Ohio Urology's internal file server. The files and documents included personal information about patients, employees, and in some cases people that paid for medical services.
We are working with a computer forensics firm to investigate this incident and are updating system protections to help prevent this type of incident from recurring in the future. Based on the findings of our investigation to date, we are providing the following information and resources:
The privacy and security of our patients' and employees' information is a top priority, and we sincerely regret any concern this incident may cause.
