Norton Healthcare Data Breach:
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Norton Healthcare data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Norton Healthcare, Inc., which operates clinics and hospitals in Kentucky and Southern Indiana, has reported a data security incident that exposed the private information of approximately 2.5 million individuals.
The data breach, later determined to be a ransomware event, occurred between May 7 and May 9, 2023 and allowed an unauthorized party to gain access to certain network storage devices.
Patients, as well as employees and their dependents, had their information exposed in the breach. While impacted information varies by person, it may include names, contact information, Social Security numbers, birthdates, health information, insurance information, and medical identification numbers. Some individuals may have also had their driver's license or other government ID numbers leaked, along with financial account numbers and digital signatures.
Back in May, notorious ransomware gang ALPHV (BlackCat) said it was responsible for the attack and the exfiltration of nearly five terabytes of data, according to DataBreaches.net.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Norton Healthcare to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
