Benefits partner Horan Associates has confirmed that correspondence sent to several employees’ homes details a legitimate data breach event. In a letter dated July 17, 2015, Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE) informed recipients of a “data security compromise.” The company provides electronic medical records to certain health care provider clients. These records are not managed by Xavier University nor Horan systems.
Horan and Xavier’s Office of Human Resources (OHR) recommend that employees who received the letter reference MIE’s press release for additional information.
