Lake Charles Memorial Health Data Breach Investigation

The Lyon Firm is actively involved in class action personal privacy and data theft cases and is currently investigating Lake Charles Memorial Health data breach claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.

On Dec. 22, Southwest Louisiana Health Care System (Lake Charles Memorial Health System) notified HHS that a data breach incident affected 269,752 patients.

The Hive ransomware team had notified Lake Charles Memorial Health System in October that they had exfiltrated 270 GB of the hospital, employee, and patient data. They allegedly demanded $900,000 to delete all the data they had exfiltrated and to inform LCMH of the system vulnerabilities.
