Seeley Medical of Andover, OH Reports Privacy Breach

In early September of 2020, Seeley Medical gave public notice of a data privacy breach. According to the Ohio medical equipment company, their internal systems had been compromised by malware which prevented access to certain files. Unauthorized access is believed to have occurred between 8/31/2020 and 9/7/2020.

With the help of 3rd-party computer forensic specialists, Seeley completed an investigation that delved into the suspicious activity after it was first detected. At the conclusion of the investigation, it was discovered that an unauthorized user was able to gain access to the company’s system and implant malware. This same user is also believed to have gained access to private files in the system.

By November 2nd, 2020, Seeley had completed the investigative process which identified the sensitive data as well as the persons whose information may have been unlawfully accessed. Among the data points retrieved in the data breach were included:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone
  • Medical Record Number
  • Social Security Number
  • Prescription Information

As of the release of Seeley’s public notice, the company had not found any evidence that showed the leaked information being misused. Moreover, Seeley has taken steps to improve its data storage processes and systems.

Saeed & Little Announce Investigation of Reported Data Leak At Seeley Medical

Ali Saeed, an experienced data breach attorney, has begun an investigation of the personal information which may have been released in the leak.

The nature of the data, which ties names to addresses and even social security numbers, is incredibly sensitive in nature; this is of particular concern to the legal team at Saeed & Little LLP who is devoted to fighting for the rights of victimized groups.

Were You A Victim Of Seeley’s Data Breach?

If you believe your personal information may have been leaked, or if you’ve already received notice that your personal data was affected, you are right to be concerned. Such sensitive information in the wrong hands can cause victims significant and even permanent damages.

As it stands, Mr. Saeed is working to determine exactly which legal steps may be taken by those individuals who, in working with Seeley Medical in the past, may have inadvertently exposed themselves to this data breach.

As a victim of such a data breach, it’s important to understand that the situation is likely still evolving. Additional details regarding the number of individuals and the exact data leaked may become available down the line, though this does not stop those who were affected from seeking legal representation.
