Anthem Security Breach

As you may already be aware, on February 4, 2015 Anthem announced a severe data breach that may impact SD Fire members as well as more than 80 million individuals nationwide. Cyber-hackers gained unauthorized access to personal information about current and former Anthem members, as well as Anthem employees. Our health care consultants at Brown Insurance Services have provided us with the following information:


·       These cyber attackers gained unauthorized access to Anthem’s Information Technology (IT) system and have obtained personal information from its current and former members such as their names, birthdays, member health ID numbers/Social Security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information.


·       Anthem’s investigation to date indicates there is no evidence that credit card or medical information, such as claims, test results, or diagnostic codes were targeted or compromised.


·       Anthem has retained Mandiant, one of the world’s leading cyber security firms, to provide incident response and security assessment services.


·       Anthem is working with the FBI to determine the source and extent of the data breach, as well as the names of the individuals directly affected by the data breach.


·       It may take up to two weeks for Anthem to identify the individuals directly affected by the data breach.


·       As soon as the individuals are identified Anthem will send a targeted letter informing them that their information was compromised.  If a family is enrolled in Anthem, each affected family member will receive this notice.


Anthem will offer the affected individuals the following credit monitoring services for up to 12 months, beginning on January 29th (the date the data breach was confirmed). These credit-monitoring services will be offered at no cost to the individual. Please note that all affected individuals will be automatically enrolled in the identity repair service but they will have to affirmatively elect to participate in the other services listed below.

·       Anthem has not yet released the name of the credit monitoring vendor, or the full scope of the services the vendor will offer, as it still negotiating the contract.


·       There is a fake email being circulated phishing for additional personal information. Members should not respond to this email, as Anthem will be contacting the affected member via U.S. Mail. A copy of the fake email is attached for your reference.



Anthem has created a dedicated website (www.AnthemFacts.com) where you and other members can access information such as frequently asked questions and answers and a telephone number that members can call 1-877-263-7995.  Members may also contact Brown Insurance Services directly at 714-460-7744 with any additional questions/concerns.

We are hosting a fundraising event coming up this Spring on May 16th to raise funds and awareness for Voices for Children.  The event is a Saturday afternoon event called Wine, Women & Shoes where donors come out for a day wine, shopping and a fashion show. Every year we recruit 20-30 “shoe guys” or “shoe hosts” to join us for the party, display shoes on silver platters and help talk up the auction and sell raffle tickets.  This year, our committee came up with the idea of asking area Firefighters to volunteer in uniform as our shoe hosts.  I’m hoping that you can recommend the best way to reach out to area firehouses to recruit volunteers for our event.  It’s a wonderful cause and a fun, afternoon event.  Can we send the attached flyer edited with firefighter information to area firehouses or is there a good central location that may be a better place to promote it?
The Mission of Voices for Children is to transform the lives of foster children by training and providing Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs).  I have included more information below. Thank you for your assistance pointing me in the right direction.
Our Mission
Voices for Children transforms the lives of abused children in San Diego County by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). We believe that every child deserves a safe and permanent home, and to that end, will review and monitor every court file in the system, provide a CASA to every child in the foster care system who needs one, and advocate to improve the lives of San Diego County’s foster children.
In addition, Voices for Children increases awareness about the foster care system, and advocates for legal policies and practices that enhance the quality of life for foster children.

Firefighters Cancer Support Network

Our Objective The objective of the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) is to provide timely assistance to all fire service members and their families in the event of cancer diagnosis. We maintain and continuously update a roster of mentors who have personal experience with many types of cancers who will personally guide you through the process of dealing with your specific illness. In addition to our mentor program, we are always in need of volunteers to assist us by helping to support our various committees, specialized task programs, member support activities and specialized events we are asked to attend. The FCSN also provides awareness to fire service members and their families about the importance of cancer prevention and screening by coordinating educational opportunities with various health programs. We do not provide legal or medical advice but can provide assistance and guidance for other support options such as behavioral health services, fire service organizations, Fire Service Chaplains, another cancer support programs. The FCSN is in collaboration with the American Cancer Society and the Live Strong Foundation. - See more at: http://www.firefightercancersupport.org/about/#sthash.z8CVqfaI.dpuf
