This issue is all about data security and how some companies may have failed to safeguard their customers’ and patients’ private data. If you received a data breach notice stating that your information may have been compromised during security incidents involving Harvard Pilgrim, Genworth Financial, Wilton Reassurance Company or Kannact, you may be able to help get a lawsuit started on behalf of those affected.
Keep reading for these stories, as well as the latest in open class action settlements that you may be able to claim.
Genworth Financial recently announced that a data breach targeting a widely used file transfer platform, MOVEit, has compromised files containing the personal information of an estimated 2.5 to 2.7 million life insurance policyholders and insurance agents. In its online announcement of the incident, Genworth revealed that files accessed by cybercriminals during the breach contained life insurance policyholders’ Social Security numbers, names, dates of birth, zip codes, states of residence and policy numbers. For insurance agents, the cyberattack reportedly exposed agent IDs, names, dates of birth and addresses. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of victims. If you received a data breach notice from Genworth Financial or otherwise believe that your personal information may have been exposed in the breach, read up on the investigation here.
Wilton Reassurance, which provides life insurance and reinsurance services, alerted the Maine Attorney General’s office in June 2023 that a data breach involving the same tool mentioned in the previous story may have exposed the personal information of nearly 1.5 million individuals – likely policyholders. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that a class action lawsuit could be filed to help those affected recover money for any harm resulting from the breach, such as the cost of identity theft protection services, time spent monitoring credit, and more. Before that can happen, however, attorneys would like to speak with those who received a letter stating that their information may have been exposed or otherwise believe they were affected. If this sounds like something you’re going through, tell us about it here and you may be able to help get a lawsuit on file.

If you received a letter about the Kannact data breach or otherwise believe data you entrusted to the company was exposed, you may be able to take action. Attorneys suspect that the digital health company may have failed in its duty to safeguard the personal information of more than 100,000 health plan members whose data was reportedly compromised in a recent cyberattack – and as a result, a class action lawsuit could be filed. According to Kannact’s April 12 online notice of the incident, compromised data may include health plan members’ names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security and driver’s license numbers, and protected health information. A successful lawsuit could help compensate victims for any harm they experienced as a result of the data breach. It could also force the company to improve its data security practices. If you received a letter stating that your information may have been exposed, head over to this page for the details.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to hear from anyone who received a data breach notice from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. On May 24, the New England-based health services provider reported that personal and medical information belonging to more than 2.5 million people was exposed during a ransomware attack from March 28 to April 17, 2023. Attorneys are looking into whether Harvard Pilgrim had adequate data security procedures in place and whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of people whose information was exposed. A lawsuit could potentially help compensate data breach victims for any harm they experienced as a result of the breach. If you received one of the notices or think you’ve been affected by the breach, head over to this page.
