Like many companies hit by data breaches, Anthem, the United States’ largest for-profit health care company, has been forced to watch from the sidelines while the incident plays out in court.
An end finally appears to be in sight however. Late Friday the company agreed to settle a series of lawsuits stemming from the 2015 breach of data belonging to 79 million individuals. As part of the settlement Anthem said it would pay $115 million. The funds will mostly go towards two years of credit monitoring for the breach’s victims.
