Federman & Sherwood Investigates Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A. for Data Breach


The law firm of Federman & Sherwood has initiated an investigation into Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A. with respect to their recent data breach. On March 5, 2024, Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A. detected it was the target of a cybersecurity attack whereby an unauthorized third party gained access and left a ransom note on Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A.'s network. Upon discovery of the incident, Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A. immediately disconnected access to the network, alerted its third-party IT provider, and conducted a forensic investigation into the nature and scope of the incident. The investigation determined that between March 2, 2024 and March 5, 2024, the unauthorized actor obtained access to certain systems and copied data from Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons P.A.'s network that included the following information: for patients: individuals name, date of birth, mailing address, Social Security number, medical treatment information, and health insurance claims information; for employees: individuals name, date of birth, mailing address, Social Security number, driver's license number, and passport number.
