On or around May 20, 2023, there was a data breach of some of LifeWorks Wellness Center’s internal file systems. To their knowledge, an unauthorized third party accessed some of LifeWorks’ servers, which contained some current and former patient and employee personal information including first and last names, social security numbers, credit card numbers and/or some medical information. However, the key patient database, which houses all patient medical and treatment records, was not breached and was not compromised.
LifeWorks has been working with a third-party firm to investigate this incident. Additionally, immediately upon learning of the breach, LifeWorks implemented extra security measures to further strengthen its systems to work to prevent a recurrence of such an attack. They have also notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and are in contact with the Office of the Florida Attorney General.
Currently, they are unaware of any actual misuse of any information, however LifeWorks encourages all current and former patients and employees to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or fraudulent activity to the relevant financial institutions, law enforcement, the Attorney General’s office and/or the Federal Trade Commission.
