Data Breach Investigation of Leaked Bansley & Kiener Health and Benefits Plan Information

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Bansley & Kiener, a Chicago accounting firm that conducts payroll compliance for health, pension, and other employee benefit plans across the Midwest, for failing to safeguard sensitive plan participant data in a data breach that occurred in December of 2021.  The data breach was caused by unauthorized access to the firm’s network that contained the personal information of over 70,000 health and employee benefits plan participants for employers across the Midwest region. Examples of the types of data exposed in the leak include names, dates of birth, addresses, social security numbers, medical records, lab results, diagnoses, medications, health insurance information, and dates of services.

Cybercriminals commonly use information obtained from data breaches to commit a wide variety of identity theft.  For example, in previous data breaches, individuals have had to pay out of pocket for credit monitoring or for new fraudulent charges. Individuals may have noticed suspicious credit or banking activity, disrupted medical care, or medical appointments fraudulently created, canceled, and/or billed in their name.
