Maryville, TN - Molecular Pathology Laboratory Network, Inc. ("MPLN") announces a data security incident that may have impacted the privacy of certain information.

On December 17, 2021, MPLN experienced a cyber-incident that impacted some protected health information ("PHI") within its data network. MPLN immediately shut down its data system, conducted an extensive investigation with the assistance of a third-party forensic firm, notified law enforcement, and implemented additional security measures. As part of MPLN's initial investigation, it was discovered that a limited amount of information may have been accessed in connection with this incident. Upon discovery, MPLN performed a thorough and time intensive review to determine whether the impacted data contained any sensitive information, and if so, to whom the information relates. On July 6, 2022, this review was completed and MPLN discovered that individuals' information was contained within the potentially impacted data set. MPLN then worked to obtain up-to-date contact information in order to provide individuals with notification.
