Murphy Law Firm is investigating claims on behalf of all individuals whose personal and confidential information was potentially compromised in the data breach involving Harrisburg Medical Center (“HMC”). On December 23, 2022, HMC detected unusual activity on its computer network, indicating a data breach. Based on a forensic investigation, HMC confirmed that cybercriminals infiltrated its inadequately secured computer systems and gained access to, and potentially acquired, the sensitive personal information of 147,826 individuals. The information exposed in the data breach includes:
Social Security numbers
Dates of birth
Financial account information
Health insurance information
As a result of the data breach, these individuals’ personal and highly confidential information may be in the hands of cybercriminals who can place the information for sale on the dark web or use the information to perpetrate identity fraud.
Murphy Law Firm is evaluating legal options, including a potential class action lawsuit, to recover damages for individuals who were affected by the data breach.
