Covid Contact-Tracing Company, Insight Global, experiences Data Breach
Lisa Chapman and Lead Counsel, Shub & Johns LLC, filed a proposed class action lawsuit against Insight Global and the Pennsylvania Department of Health after a data breach exposed sensitive health information for more than 76,000 individuals following Pennsylvania’s Covid-19 contact tracing initiative.
The class action suit alleged that The Department of Health and Insight Global were negligent, failing to protect constituents’ sensitive health information during the contact tracing collection process. An amendment to the class action suit later dropped the Pennsylvania Department of Health from the case.
The data breach, occurring in April 2021, exposed information including names, indications of exposure to Covid-19 and the presence of Covid-19 symptoms, and other personal identifiers such as telephone numbers, household sizes, and more.
