Attorneys general from a dozen states have filed a lawsuit against Medical Informatics Engineering and NoMoreClipboard related to their 2015 data breach, KVOA reports. Hackers were able to access a web application run by the companies. The malicious actors stole the protected health information of 3.9 million patients, including names, telephone numbers and Social Security numbers. The attorneys general allege the entities failed to properly implement security measures to prevent the breach and encrypted sensitive information. The lawsuit also states the companies “had an inadequate and ineffective response to the breach.”
