By Jill McKeon December 09, 2022 - Conway Regional Medical Center in Arkansas agreed to pay $295,000 to settle a lawsuit stemming from a 2019 healthcare data breach. In June 2019, Conway fell victim to a phishing scheme resulting in the potential exposure of personal information, including names, Social Security numbers, addresses, health insurance information, and medical information. The plaintiff alleged that Conway 'failed to adequately safeguard its patients' electronically stored personally identifiable information and protected health information.
