11. UConn Health

Number Of Records Exposed: 326,629

UConn Health learned that an unauthorized third party in August 2018 illegally accessed the Farmington, Conn.-based health care system's employee email accounts. The company notified law enforcement and retained a leading forensic security firm to investigate and conduct a comprehensive search for any personal information in the impacted email accounts.

UConn determined on Dec. 24, 2018, that the accounts contained some personal information, including individuals’ names, dates of birth, addresses, Social Security numbers, and limited medical information, such as billing and appointment information.

The breach, which was disclosed on Feb. 22, had no impact on UConn Health's computer networks or electronic medical record systems. A class-action lawsuit was filed against UConn Health in March after a fraudulent charge was made from one patient's bank account and caused an overdraft, alleging that officials failed to provide a timely, accurate, and adequate notice that a data breach had occurred.
