Plaintiffs Alma Fidela Cercas of California, and Kaitlyn Nakagoshi of Florida, and Judy Anne Grause of Virginia, filed a class action lawsuit accusing Ambry Genetics Corp. of exposing their personal data and protected health information, along with 230,000 other patients.
The genetic testing provider allegedly neglected to implement industry security standards, leading to a cybersecurity incident involving unauthorized access to an employee’s email account between January 2 and 24, 2020. The company failed to notify patients of the data breach for three months.

Olson of Robinson Calcagnie, Inc.; and Jean Martin, John A. Yanchunis and Ryan J. McGee of Morgan & Morgan Complex Litigation Group.
