LifeLab hit with 2 lawsuits after data breach that affected 15 million consumers

Listen

Two consumers that might have had their information exposed after a data breach at LifeLab have filed lawsuits against the diagnostic testing company, according to the Vancouver Sun.

The lawsuits claim LifeLabs failed to protect consumers' information. Additionally, the lawsuits seek to become a class action.

In December, LifeLabs discovered that the information of 15 million consumers may have been exposed after an unauthorized third-party gained access to its computer system. The computer systems stored consumers' names, addresses, emails, logins, passwords, dates of birth, healthcare numbers and lab test results.

After discovering the unauthorized access, LifeLabs secured its computer systems. The company has also been working to strengthen its security.
