NHDP - NH Leaders to Discuss How Walt Havenstein Oversaw Massive Data Breach at SAIC

Where He Oversaw a Massive Data Breach Threatening the Privacy of Nearly 5 Million TRICARE Beneficiaries 


MANCHESTER - Tomorrow at 11:00 AM, Army veteran and Majority Leader Steve Shurtleff and Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern will join a press call to discuss Walt Havenstein's disastrous record as CEO of SAIC, where he oversaw a massive data breach threatening the privacy of nearly 5 million TRICARE beneficiaries, including 7,984 Granite Staters. 
 
The Washington Post called the incident “One of the Largest Health-Data Breaches Ever Reported” (Washington Post, November 24, 2011) and according to reports in the Boston Globe, the breach affected “70,000 military personnel, retirees, and their families across New England” including 7,984 Granite Staters (Boston Globe, May 5, 2012). Despite having experienced another major data security breach under Havenstein’s watch a year earlier, the company failed to ensure it was complying with federal security standards in order to protect TRICARE beneficiaries’ data (Letter, May 7, 2012).
