Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida (Florida Blue) has announced that 475 applications for insurance were backed up to the cloud, on an unsecured cloud server, by an unaffiliated agent of Real Time Health Quotes, and exposed the personal information of 939 individuals.
The data that was backed up to the unsecured cloud server included Florida Blue files and copies of health, dental and life insurance applications from 2009-2014. The applications included the names, addresses, Social Security numbers, medical histories, and some banking and financial information.
Florida Blue is still investigating how the agent obtained the applications and files and why they were stored on an unsecured cloud server. Those affected have been offered two years of credit monitoring at no cost.
