SNGR says hack of Lifelabs not local issue

OHSWEKEN — In a statement posted to Facebook on Friday, Six Nations of the Grand River clarified that a security breech of the Lifelabs computer systems was not a Six Nations issue.

While some of Six Nations health services departments do use Lifelabs for laboratory testing, the computer systems that were hacked did not occur on Six Nations but for Lifelabs as a whole.

Lifelabs issued a statement identifying an “unauthorized cyber-incident” that put it’s database of patient information such as Health Card numbers, date of birth, address, email, passwords and test results at risk.

Lifelabs says there has been no public disclosure of those patient details and that cyber security firms say the overall risk to people’s personal information is low.

There is a hotline for anyone concerned and looking for more information at 1-888-918-0467.
