  2. Worcester-based UMass Memorial Medical Center paid $1.2 million to settle a March 2022 lawsuit regarding a data breach of its payroll management system Kronos.

  3. Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based Advent Health agreed to pay $500,000 to settle a data breach lawsuit alleging that the health system failed to protect patients' confidential information after a September 2021 data breach.
