- Excerpt from Kaiser Foundation Health Plan Settles California Attorney General Charges over Delayed Data Breach Notification:

(Kaiser) recently agreed to settle charges brought by California Attorney General Kamala Harris alleging that Kaiser, a component of Kaiser Permanente, the largest health maintenance organization in the U.S., violated California’s unfair competition law by taking too long to notify more than 20,000 current and former employees that their personal information had been compromised.
