10. Tandem Diabetes Care

Number Of Records Exposed: 140,781

Tandem Diabetes Care learned Jan. 17 that an unauthorized person gained access to an employee’s email account through phishing, with a subsequent investigation finding that five Tandem employee email accounts may have been accessed by an unauthorized user between Jan. 17 and Jan. 20, the San Diego-based medical device manufacturer said on March 16.

Some customer information was contained within these email accounts, including customer names, contact information, information related to those customers’ use of products or services from Tandem, clinical data regarding their diabetes therapy, and in a few limited instances, Social Security numbers.

Customers whose Social Security numbers were included in the email accounts can get a complimentary membership for credit monitoring and identity protection services, Tandem said.
