Murphy Law Firm is investigating claims on behalf of all individuals whose personal and confidential information was compromised in the data breach involving Hypertension-Nephrology Associates, P.C. (“Hypertension-Nephrology Associates”). On February 6, 2024, Hypertension-Nephrology Associates detected suspicious activity on its computer network, indicating a data breach. Based on a subsequent forensic investigation, Hypertension-Nephrology Associates determined that cybercriminals infiltrated its inadequately secured computer systems and thereby gained access to its data files during the period January 20, 2024, through February 6, 2024. The investigation further determined that, through this infiltration, cybercriminals potentially accessed and acquired files containing the sensitive personal information of 39,491 individuals. The information exposed in the data breach includes:

  • Names
