USA: Dynasplint notifies OCR of data breach

Dynasplint Systems, Inc. notified, on 6 August 2020, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Office for Civil Rights ('OCR'), that it had suffered a data breach incident affecting 102,800 individuals, which the OCR is now investigating. 

In particular, Dynasplint noted that it had suffered a data security incident on 16 May 2020, and had initiated an investigation which determined, on 4 June 2020, that certain information was accessed without authorisation, which may have included names, addresses, dates of birth, social security numbers, and medical information. In addition, Dynasplint outlined that it had notified affected individuals on 7 August 2020, where the notification included information about the incident and measures that can be taken to protect personal information, including free identity monitoring and recovery services.
