Health insurance provider Anthem disclosed on Feb. 4 that it was the victim of a data breach that exposed 80 million customer and employee records.

Multiple Anthem brands—including Anthem Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Amerigroup and Caremore were impacted by the breach.

Once the breach was discovered, Anthem contacted the FBI and took steps to close possible security vulnerabilities. Anthem retained FireEye's Mandiant cyber-response division to investigate the breach. Anthem will also provide free credit monitoring and identity protection services for impacted individuals.

Google has started shipping Android 5.1 Lollipop, the latest version of its mobile operating system, on Android One smartphones in Indonesia.

The company has not officially announced the new Android version yet. Android Police, a site that tracks Android-related news, posted several photos that it claims show Android One devices designed for Indonesia running the latest version of the operating system.

IBM announced a new cloud-based analytics platform for energy and utility companies designed to improve decision-making throughout the entire energy ecosystem.
