RadNet Data Breach

NOTICE: If you are a current or former RadNet employee and received a NOTICE OF DATA BREACH, contact the Arnold Law Firm at (916) 777-7777.

radnet data breachRadNet, Inc. (RadNet) recently notified the State of California Attorney General of a data breach affecting an unknown number of its current 7,100 employees, as well as former employees located across the nation.

On July 18, 2020, a third party gained access to a RadNet server that was used to store employee data and copied files to an external server. The compromised personal information reportedly includes:

  • Full names
  • Social Security numbers
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Addresses
  • Passport numbers

On September 21, 2020, RadNet notified affected employees of the data incident without explanation of the two-month delay.

RadNet claims to have taken measures to prevent similar activity in the future and is offering employees free identity theft protection and ID theft recovery services, as well as an insurance reimbursement policy. The company also recommends that staff monitor for potential misuse of personal information, such as unauthorized credit activity.

With Radnet’s headquarters in Los Angeles, a large number of affected employees are likely located in California and fall under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) notification requirements.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) applies to companies that do business in California and collect personal information from California residents. It requires businesses to notify any California resident whose personal information was compromised as a result of a data breach. Any business notifying more than 500 California residents as a result of a single breach must also submit a sample copy of that notification to California’s Attorney General.

The CCPA went into effect on January 1, 2020 and is considered to be one of the broadest state-level privacy laws in U.S. history. Among the rights the CCPA endows is the consumer’s right to bring an action for statutory damages if a data breach meets certain requirements.

With 335 imaging centers, RadNet is the largest provider of outpatient imaging services in the nation, with locations predominantly in California, Arizona, and the East Coast. RadNet was founded in 1981 as a small imaging center in Los Angeles, California. Estimated annual revenues now exceed $1 billion.
