7 News – Healthcare Company MediSecure Targeted in Cyber Attack

E-script provider MediSecure has fallen victim to a large scale data breach, potentially putting Australians’ private medical information at risk. Ross Bark spoke to 7 News to discuss.

MediSecure, which has been operating since 2009, specialises in providing electronic prescriptions to health professionals.

It comes nearly two years after Australia’s largest health insurer Medibank suffered a data breach in which nearly 10 million customers had personal information, including names, dates of birth, addresses and phone numbers, compromised.
