Forefront Dermatology Data Breach Lawsuit Investigation
Stueve Siegel Hanson, a national leader in data breach and privacy cases, is investigating potential claims against Forefront Dermatology resulting from a data breach that exposed employees’ and patients’ sensitive personal and medical information.
On July 8, 2021, Forefront Dermatology announced that hackers gained access to its internal systems that store patients’ protected health information and demanded a ransom in exchange for its release. An investigation revealed that hackers had access to patients’ names, addresses, dates of birth, patient account numbers, health insurance plan member ID numbers, medical record numbers, dates of service, accession numbers, provider names, and/or medical and clinical treatment information.
When their demands were not met, the hackers released the information on the dark web where it can be downloaded by criminals across the globe. Affected individuals are now at serious risk of medical-related identity theft and fraud and should take immediate action.
