Kohn Swift’s consumer protection lawyers represent customers harmed by cybersecurity data breaches. Our consumer attorneys bring these personal information security suits as individual lawsuits or class actions on behalf of consumers whose financial and other personal information was stolen and used for fraudulent purposes.
When a business fails to adequately protect its customers’ information, a single hacking incident can expose the confidential data of millions of consumers. This theft of private information can have serious and long-lasting effects on a consumer.
Consumer protection attorneys often bring cybersecurity data breach lawsuits as consumer class actions on behalf of large numbers of consumers whose 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.
