Des Moines Orthopaedic Surgeons suffers data incident


Des Moines (Iowa) Orthopaedic Surgeons was hit with a data security incident that affected certain protected health information.

The orthopedic group's network suffered the incident around Feb. 17, 2023, when an unauthorized actor was able to access and remove certain DMOS files due to a vendor failure, according to a notice issued by the practice. 

Data that was compromised includes full names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, driver's license numbers, state identification numbers, passports, direct deposit bank information, medical information and health insurance information. 

When DMOS learned of the incident, they engaged with external cybersecurity professionals and changed cybersecurity vendors supporting their network security. 

DMOS is not aware of any incidents of identity or financial fraud as a result of the breach, the notice said.
