SAC Health System Lawsuit – Data Breach of Medical Information

Consumer Protection Attorneys in California

On January 15, 2021, Netgain disclosed to SAC Health System that a data security incident resulted in the potential for unauthorized access to certain Netgain servers containing SAC Health System’s data between November 15, 2020 and November 22, 2020.

SAC Health System then immediately undertook a review of the data at issue, and out of an abundance of caution, decided to notify all individuals who potentially had data on the Netgain systems at the time of the Netgain event.


Hackers Stole Patient Data During the Attack

SAC Health System immediately began working with Netgain to determine the nature and scope of this potential access, and also launched its own independent investigation into this matter.

As a result of this investigation, on April 20, 2021, SAC Health System was able to confirm that certain of its data on Netgain’s servers were subject to unauthorized access.


Consumers Deserve the Highest Level of Security

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.

This is especially true when medical information is involved. Medical information of the type lost here, is given special protection under California law.

***For those patients whose data was exposed, SAC Health System has begun mailing notification letters.***
