Babylon Health admits ‘software error’ led to patient data breach
Posted June 10, 2020
- Babylon Health, a UK AI chatbot and telehealth startup which has been valued in excess of $2BN, has suffered an embarrassing data breach after a user of the app found he was able to access other patients’ video consultations.
- While Babylon is spinning this breach as “small” — and in numbers affected terms that seems to be the case — medical information is among the most sensitive personal data there is.
