Ravkoo Notifies Patients of Data Security Incident

Auburndale, Florida: January 3, 2022 – Ravkoo recently discovered that a data security incident on Ravkoo’s AWS hosted portal may have resulted in the unintentional exposure of personal information. Ravkoo sent notification of this incident to potentially impacted individuals and has provided resources to assist them.  Please be assured that Ravkoo takes the protection and proper use of personal information very seriously, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

What Happened:  Ravkoo utilizes AWS cloud services for online hosting of its prescription portal. On September 27, 2021, Ravkoo detected that this portal was the target of a cybersecurity attack. An unauthorized third party attempted to infiltrate the portal. Ravkoo immediately engaged outside cybersecurity experts to conduct an investigation and to assist in its mitigation, restoration, and remediation efforts.  Ravkoo’s responsive forensic investigation subsequently revealed that certain prescription and health information could have been compromised. Notably, we have found no evidence that any individual’s Social Security Number was accessed or compromised as Ravkoo does not maintain this information within the impacted portal.  Further, Ravkoo does not have any evidence to indicate that any information involved in the incident has been or will be misused as a result of this incident. 

What We Are Doing:  Ravkoo worked with forensic experts to assess and increase the security of its AWS hosted portal.  Further, Ravkoo reported the incident to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is committed to assisting the FBI’s investigation into this matter.

As a safeguard, we have arranged for the potentially impacted individuals to enroll in a complimentary, online credit monitoring service provided by Kroll.  With this protection, Kroll will help resolve issues if your identity is compromised.

What You Can Do:  The notification letters that were sent to potentially affected individuals include resources and steps that they can take to help protect their personal and protected health information.  Security recommendations include the following:

  • Credit Report – Obtain a copy of your credit report, free of charge, whether or not you suspect any unauthorized activity on your account.
  • Security Freezes – You have the right to place a security freeze on your credit report. A security freeze is intended to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent.
  • Fraud Alerts – Fraud alerts tell creditors to follow certain procedures, including contacting you, before they open any new accounts or change your existing accounts.
  • Monitoring – Remain vigilant and monitor your accounts for suspicious or unusual activity.

Again, at this time, there is no evidence that any sensitive information has been misused.  However, we encourage the potentially impacted individuals to take full advantage of this service offering.  Kroll representatives have been fully versed on the incident and can answer questions or concerns regarding protection of personal information.

For More Information:  Please know that the protection of your personal information is a top priority, and we sincerely regret any concern or inconvenience that this matter may cause you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Kroll at 1-855-545-2509, Monday – Friday, 9:00am to 6:30pm Eastern Standard Time.

Sincerely,

Alpesh Patel

Box 105281, Atlanta, GA, 30348-5281.

Security Freeze: You also have the right to place a security freeze on your credit report. A security freeze is intended to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. To place a security freeze on your credit report, you need to make a request to each consumer reporting agency. You may make that request by certified mail, overnight mail, regular stamped mail, or by following the instructions found at the websites listed below. The following information must be included when requesting a security freeze (note that if you are requesting a credit report for your spouse or a minor under the age of 16, this information must be provided for him/her as well): (1) full name, with middle initial and any suffixes; (2) Social Security number; (3) date of birth; (4) current address and any previous addresses for the past five years; and (5) any applicable incident report or complaint with a law enforcement agency or the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

Fraud Alerts: You can place fraud alerts with the three credit bureaus by phone and online with:

A fraud alert tells creditors to follow certain procedures, including contacting you, before they open any new accounts or change your existing accounts. For that reason, placing a fraud alert can protect you, but also may delay you when you seek to obtain credit. As of September 21, 2018, initial fraud alerts last for one year. Victims of identity theft can also get an extended fraud alert for seven years. The phone numbers for all three credit bureaus are at the bottom of this page.

Monitoring: You should always remain vigilant and monitor your accounts for suspicious or unusual activity.

File Police Report: You have the right to file or obtain a police report if you experience identity fraud. Please note that in order to file a crime report or incident report with law enforcement for identity theft, you will likely need to provide proof that you have been a victim. A police report is often required to dispute fraudulent items. You can generally report suspected incidents of identity theft to local law enforcement or to the Attorney General.

FTC and Attorneys General: You can further educate yourself regarding identity theft, fraud alerts, security freezes, and the steps you can take to protect yourself, by contacting the consumer reporting agencies, the Federal Trade Commission, or your state Attorney General.

The Federal Trade Commission can be reached at: 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20580, www.identitytheft.gov, 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338), TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The Federal Trade Commission also encourages those who discover that their information has been misused to file a complaint with them. You can obtain further information on how to file such a complaint by way of the contact information listed above. You have the right to file a police report if you ever experience identity theft or fraud. Please note that in order to file a report with law enforcement for identity theft, you will likely need to provide some proof that you have been a victim. Instances of known or suspected identity theft should also be reported to law enforcement. This notice has not been delayed by law enforcement.
