The FBI said it's close to finding the hackers responsible for the attack on health-insurance company Anthem Inc. that exposed personal data on about 80 million customers. FBI officials are still deciding whether to publicly reveal information about the attackers in one of the biggest thefts of medical-related customer data in U.S. history. An FBI spokesman said agency officials don't want to compromise investigations or operations by any disclosures.

North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm says the industry has long anticipated such an attack. "I think all insurance commissioners knew it was only a matter of time before a major insurer had a breach," says Hamm, head of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' (NAIC's) new Cybersecurity Task Force.
