July 3, 2019

The Delaware Department of Insurance recently received notice of a data security breach suffered by Dominion National, an insurer and administrator of dental and vision benefits. On April 24, through its investigation of an internal alert, Dominion National discovered that servers containing enrollment data, demographic details, and personal information of consumers, plan producers, and health care providers may have been accessed by an unauthorized party.

Dominion National advised the Department of Insurance that they responded immediately by cleaning the affected servers and initiating a comprehensive review of data stored on or potentially accessible from the servers. Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro said, "Upon receiving notice of this breach, I asked that our market conduct division begin an investigation to learn all of the facts behind this incident. The Department of Insurance will determine if appropriate safeguards were in place, and if private consumer information was handled properly.”According to Dominion National, there is “no evidence that any information was in fact accessed, acquired, or misused.” Dominion National has posted a security notice online at dominionnationalfacts.com.
