Premera has incurred 38 lawsuits since March disclosure of data breach

Although representatives of Mountlake Terrace, Wash.-based Premera maintain that there is no evidence of criminal activity linked to a data breach it disclosed in March, the company is now facing a total of 38 class-action lawsuits.

In spite of Premera's denial of criminal activity in the wake of the breach, which compromised the records of nearly 11 million current and former clients, the lawsuits do allege varying degrees of identity fraud, according to the Seattle Times.

The cyberattack, which affected customers of Premera Blue Cross, Premera Blue Shield of Alaska and Vivacity, among other organizations, is still being investigated by the FBI.
