Possible Tricare data Compromise
My apologies if this has been posted before. I just got back from a couple of weeks in Alaska and have not had time to read the many posts since returning last night, but I thought that this may be important info for some of you folks.
Possible TRICARE Data Compromise
SAIC announced a "security failure" today in the handling of TRICARE customer data. The company alerted MOAA that "uniformed service members, family members and others were at risk of potential compromise." The company said the situation was a "totally unacceptable failure on our part." SAIC said that "forensic analysis has not yielded any evidence that any personal information was actually compromised; however, the possibility cannot be ruled out." SAIC is notifying approximately 580,000 households (870,000 beneficiaries) of the incident.
The SAIC's website contains additional information including a news release, questions and answers, and contact information.
MOAA is deeply troubled to learn of yet another potential breach of personal information of the uniformed services community. It is vital to the nation's security that the personal information of military families be protected at all costs. Additional updates will be provided through various MOAA media as information becomes available.
