Ascension, a Texas-based health system, encountered a cybersecurity breach on May 8 leading to class action lawsuits over compromised patient information. On May 9, 2024, a ransomware attack by the group Black Basta unauthorizedly accessed Ascension’s network systems, disclosing personal data of plaintiffs. The breach disrupted emergency medical services and electronic health records systems. Ascension is investigating the data exposure extent and plans to notify affected individuals.
