Jefferson Surgical has announced that almost 175,000 patients may have had their data compromised in the alleged cyberattack that occurred back in June 2021. Why has it taken so long for the company to contact victims? The Lyon Firm is investigating.
Jefferson Surgical says it has no evidence to indicate that the leaked personal information has been misused yet, but once data is stolen, it remains forever at risk.
On June 5, 2021, Jefferson Surgical Clinic detected a cybersecurity attack, which may have leaked the following types of information:
- Date of birth
- Social security number
- Health/treatment information
Jefferson Surgical is offering free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services to victims, though attorneys believe more compensation is necessary.
