PHOENIX - A Phoenix-based health provider has agreed to settle a lawsuit over a computer data breach that may have compromised health and personal data of about 3 million patients, employees, health insurance customers and others.
The Arizona Republic reports that the class action lawsuit against Banner Health stemmed from a 2016 cyberattack that exposed the information.
Officials say the up to $6 million settlement includes insurance coverage up to $1 million for financial losses and two years of free credit monitoring.
Officials say the settlement is subject to court approval. Company officials also agreed to improve their information security systems.
