Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (“Tandem Diabetes”) submitted a data breach notification to the California Attorney General.  According to the data breach notification:

On January 17, 2020, [Tandem Diabetes] learned than an unauthorized person gained access to a Tandem employee’s email account through a security incident commonly known as “phishing.” Once [Tandem Diabetes] learned about the incident, [Tandem Diabetes] immediately secured the account and a cyber security firm was engaged to assist in [the] investigation. [The] investigation determined that a limited number of Tandem employee email accounts may have been accessed by an unauthorized user between January 17, 2020 and January 20, 2020.

Through the investigation, [Tandem Diabetes] learned that [one’s] name was contained within one or more of the Tandem email accounts affected by the incident. The affected email accounts may have also contained [one’s] contact information, [one’s] Social Security number, information related to [one’s] use of Tandem’s products or services, and/or clinical data regarding [one’s] diabetes therapy. [Emphasis added.]
