Anthem Refused U.S. Security Audit Before and After Data Breach

Following a recent data breach that may have exposed the personal information of as many as 80 million current and former customers and employees, health insurance provider Anthem has refused to allow the federal Office of Personnel Management’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to conduct vulnerability scans of its systems, GovInfoSecurity reports.

Anthem also refused to allow the OIG to conduct similar vulnerability scans in 2013.

The OIG told GovInfoSecurity that Anthem refused to permit it to conduct “standard vulnerability scans and configuration compliance tests.”
