In the US, Federman & Sherwood, a boutique litigation law firm that has been appointed counsel in several data breach cases, has initiated an investigation into the data breach at Central Valley Regional Center (“CVRC”).
On July 29, 2019, CVRC learned that an unauthorized third party may have gained access to an employee’s email account. CVRC immediately disabled access to the email account and learned during its investigation that the employee’s email account was subject to unauthorized access from July 25 to August 2, 2019.
On August 12, 2019, the investigation also revealed that data containing individuals’ personal information within one or more email accounts may have also been affected. The type of information that may have been impacted may include: individuals’ names, addresses and contact information, dates of birth, dates of death, Social Security numbers, driver’s license information, state identification card or other government identification numbers, Medi-Cal numbers, UCI numbers, and/or medical or health information or health insurance information.
For a number of limited individuals, Taxpayer Identification numbers, financial account or payment card information, PINs or other access codes, account passwords, usernames, email addresses or electronic identifiers and the means to access the related accounts, and/or IRS PINs may have also been affected.
Any individuals with knowledge of the data breach, those who may have suffered damages, persons wanting to discuss this data breach, obtain further information or participate in potential litigation, or have any questions or concerns regarding this notice, have been asked to contact email@example.com or visit the firm’s website at www.federmanlaw.com.
