ExecuPharm Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit Investigation
On March 13, 2020, ExecuPharm, a Pennsylvania-based subsidiary of the U.S. biopharmaceutical giant Parexel, notified individuals of a significant data breach affecting current and former employees.
According to ExecuPharm's notice, compromised data includes employees' social security numbers, taxpayer IDs, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, national insurance numbers, national ID numbers and more. Also affected are “select personnel” of parent company Parexel, whose data was stored on ExecuPharm’s data network.
Following notification of the breach, TechCrunch reported that the ransomware group behind the attack published the stolen data on underground websites. According to TechCrunch, the leak “contains a vast cache of data, including thousands of emails, financial and accounting records, user documents and database backups, stolen from ExecuPharm’s systems”--placing affected individuals at a serious risk of harm.
