Data Breach

With businesses of all kinds moving increasingly online, keeping personal data private has become more challenging than ever. As customers and clients, we trust that the companies we’ve given sensitive information to will safeguard that information—especially since the law requires it. However, too often lax privacy and data security practices leave businesses open to data breaches that expose your personal identifiable information to unauthorized parties.

When Your Personal Information Is Exposed

Information that is linked to your identity—like a Social Security number, driver’s license number, financial or medical records, and more—can be dangerous to you in the wrong hands. When a breach puts that information at risk, it’s not just a temporary inconvenience. Hackers can use personal information they illegally gain from a data breach to commit crimes like:

  • Accessing your bank, credit card, or other financial accounts
  • Applying for new loans or credit cards in your name
  • Filing fraudulent tax returns using your information to get a refund
  • Filing for government benefits in your name
  • Changing your billing address to conceal fraudulent activity

Cleaning up the damage to your finances and credit score can be difficult, expensive, and frustrating. If your data has been sold on the dark web, you may end up dealing with repeated attempts to misuse your information for years.

When your data has been exposed through a breach, you need expert assistance to set things right and hold negligent companies to account. Srourian Law Firm can help.

Was Your Personal Information Exposed?

Complex privacy and data security standards govern businesses that hold sensitive information. If your personal information was shared improperly by a place you shopped at, they may have liability for the resulting financial and reputational damage caused by misuse of your data.

Did You Receive a Data Breach Notice?

The law requires companies that have experienced a data breach to notify their customers if they’ve been affected. If you’ve gotten a letter in the mail notifying you that your data has been exposed, you need to act immediately to limit potential damage—but it may already be too late.

Did You Know You May Be Entitled to Compensation for a Data Breach?

When businesses negligently fail in their responsibility to keep your information secure, the law allows victims to hold them accountable. Identity theft and fraud can be financially costly for victims, with unauthorized account charges, expenses for investigating and resolving identity theft, and the cost of credit monitoring and repair quickly adding up. Worse, a breach can leave you exposed to further harm well into the future. Having an experienced legal team on your side can protect your rights and increase your chances of making an effective claim for recovery.
