LifeLong Medical Care has begun sending out notification letters, detailing a data breach that may impact tens of thousands of Americans tied to the organization.
Back in November 2020, Netgain, a third-party vendor linked to LifeLong, first discovered unusual network activity. An investigation determined Netgain was the victim of a ransomware attack. In February 2021, Netgain’s investigation determined that certain files were accessed and and acquired without authorization. LifeLong Medical Care conducted their own review, and patients and employees are eagerly waiting to hear what the full impact will be for them.
The U.S. Health and Human Services site notes that over 115,000 individuals may be impacted by the LifeLong Medical data breach. The specific personal data that may have been leaked is not certain at the moment, though may include:
- Social Security numbers
- Patient ID numbers
- Treatment information
The Lyon Firm is investigating the LifeLong Medical data breach and is actively involved in numerous data privacy cases and has experience filing data security claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.
