Watson Clinic Notice of Data Security Incident


Watson Clinic is providing notice of a data security incident that may have involved some of our patients’ information:

Watson Clinic recently experienced a cybersecurity incident where cybercriminals targeted portions of our network. We promptly began working with third-party experts to help us investigate and respond to the incident. During that investigation, we became aware that the unauthorized third party accessed records with personal information.

Although we are still investigating the scope of that access, we are providing this notice to share best practices to help protect personal information and because we value transparency. We will notify individuals if we determine that their personal or medical information was in the files the third party accessed. In the meantime, we encourage individuals to (1) remain vigilant for unauthorized financial activity by reviewing your account statements and free credit reports, (2) consider placing a fraud alert of security freeze on your credit file (which you can do for free), and (3) report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.

Please know that we are working to complete our investigation as quickly and thoroughly as we can. In addition to the above details, we are providing below additional information that we believe could be helpful. We understand you may have questions. Please reach out to us with your questions at Thank you for your understanding and patience.
