DATA PRIVACY AND DATA BREACH ATTORNEYS

Data breach. You have seen it on the news and it may already have happened to you. Hackers somewhere in the world, maybe Russia or China, have broken into the systems of your favorite retailer or maybe even your employer or health insurance provider. Now your private information, including social security number, credit card numbers, and maybe even bank account or medical records, are out there, floating around on the internet.

This is not acceptable. Companies know what they have to do to maintain secure systems. Especially companies that handle sensitive information like financial documents or your private medical information should be on notice of the need to safeguard against these types of attacks.

Then, to add insult to injury, the company sends you a letter saying they are giving you a year of identity theft protection, or some ridiculously small compensation. That’s just not enough. If your information is out there, there’s no getting it back. They can’t just give you a subscription to some service and say that’s all they have to do. You are entitled to monetary compensation when a company negligently allows your personal information to be stolen by hackers ready and willing to use it for their nefarious purposes. The company should never have let your information get out into the wild. There’s no putting that beast back in its cage.
