Federman & Sherwood Announces an Investigation of the UC San Diego Health Data Breach

OKLAHOMA CITY--()--Federman & Sherwood announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of UC San Diego Health (“UCSD Health”) patients, employees, and students. UCSD Health announced that a recent phishing attack on employee email accounts may have exposed a range of personal and highly sensitive data between the dates of December 2, 2020 through April 8, 2021. However, it appears the data breach was not identified by UCSD Health until July 2021. UCSD Health’s investigation into the breach has thus far revealed that cybercriminals were able to access the following highly confidential information:

Full name, address, date of birth, email, fax number, claims information (date and cost of health care services and claims identifiers), laboratory results, medical diagnosis and conditions, Medical Record Number and other medical identifiers, prescription information, treatment information, medical information, Social Security number, government identification number, payment card number or financial account number and security code, student ID number, and username and password.

If you received notice of the data breach or have otherwise determined that your personal information was comprised, please contact Federman & Sherwood.
