What Happened at Cognisight?
Cognisight, LLC has filed a notice of data breach with the Attorney General of California on behalf of San Diego PACE after discovering that a vulnerability within MOVEit may have compromised a large number of consumers’ personal data. In the filed notice, Cognisight explains that the vulnerability resulted in an unauthorized party being able to access personal information and protected health information.
On October 13, 2023, the company started sending out notification letters to individuals whose information was potentially affected by the data breach. If you received a data breach notification from Cognisight, it is important to understand you may be at an increased risk of fraud and medical identity theft. Our experienced data privacy lawyers can assist you in filing a class action claim or answer any questions you may have.
Data breach victims should remain vigilant for signs of identity theft or fraud by reviewing financial accounts, statements and credit reports for suspicious activity. Incidents of data theft and identity theft have been on the rise, placing millions of Americans at risk. Companies responsible for collecting and storing your personal data have a duty to protect it from cybercriminals.
After learning that personal data was accessed by an unauthorized party, Cognisight hired a third party to review the compromised files. The investigation is ongoing and breached information varies depending on the individual.
