Blue Shield of California Lawsuit – Data Breach of Medical Information

Consumer Protection Attorneys in California

On January 20, 2021, OneDigital, A Blue Shield broker and the broker for your employer group, detected unusual activity on its network systems. OneDigital determined that an unauthorized person may have improperly gained access to its systems through a ransomware attack.

Although OneDigital was required to notify us of the incident within 24 hours, we learned about it on October 4, 2021.

Immediately upon learning of the ransomware attack on OneDigital, Blue Shield began an investigation into the matter. The attackers’ motive appears to have been to gain personal identifying information for fraudulent purposes.

Blue Shield notification letters are being sent to all affected consumers.


While identity thieves are becoming more sophisticated at breaking through the data protection of businesses, it is the company’s responsibility to provide the highest level of security for their consumers.
