Anthem Cancels Public Events at Ball State on Data Breach

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP): Representatives from health insurer Anthem have canceled plans to speak publicly this week at Ball State University, where some school employees have had their identities stolen.
 
Ball State officials announced that Anthem representatives would instead meet individually with employees. Anthem said in a statement that it can't say anything more in public about a data breach at the health insurer due to an ongoing FBI investigation.
 
School spokesman Greg Wright estimated Monday that more than 180 Ball State employees have had their identities stolen, which were used for fraudulent tax returns. That's up from previous estimates of 140 employees.
 
The Indiana attorney general's office has said there's no evidence tying the Anthem breach to the Ball State thefts. Anthem spokesman Tony Felts says the company and FBI haven't found that stolen information was used for fraud against members.
