Cyber Security Data Breach Lawsuits
Kohn, Swift & Graf’s consumer protection lawyers are investigating credit card information hacking / thefts for potential cyber security data breach lawsuits. Our consumer attorneys bring these personal information security (infosec) suits as individual lawsuits or class actions on behalf of consumers whose financial and other personal information was stolen and used for fraudulent purposes.
Corporate hacking—which has become increasingly common in the digital age, as businesses migrate from brick and mortar to online services—frequently targets consumers’ personal and financial information. Credit card information theft can have serious and long-lasting effects on a consumer. Damages sustained by victims can range from late fees and credit monitoring costs to difficulty obtaining future credit.
When a business fails to adequately protect its customers’ credit card information, a single hacking incident can enable a hacker to acquire the confidential data of millions of consumers. Consumer protection attorneys often bring cyber security data breach lawsuits as consumer class actions on behalf of large numbers of consumers whose credit card information was obtained from a negligent corporation’s records. A class action enables these consumers to join together in seeking compensation and other relief from the corporation whose inadequate security is responsible for the breach.
