Anthem Breach: Remember the 2015 Anthem breach?  The one with up to 80 million individuals' information compromised?  The one where we think the Chinese were involved, and they got the IT folks to give up their credentials and got sysadmin privileges, so encryption wouldn't have even mattered?  Yeah, that one.

Well, Anthem has agreed to settle the lawsuit for $115 million.  Of course, that's a private lawsuit, rather than regulatory action, so there could be some additional payments by Anthem, but this is likely the biggest part.
