Data Breach & Privacy

Has your personal identifying, private information been stolen in a data breach?

A data breach occurs when an organization’s confidential information is accessed, stolen, or shared without authorization. In many cases, data breaches can result in identity theft and other serious privacy violations.

In addition to laws that protect your data, privacy rules and regulations also protect the use of your biometric information and identifiers, meaning your unique physical characteristics. Examples of biometric information and identifiers include fingerprints, facial recognition, voice, retinal and iris imaging, hand vein patterns, and DNA.

In the event of your information is stolen, the company’s typical response is to hire a team of lawyers, a public relations company, and cyber security experts to protect its business interests, not your interests. You will often receive a letter offering meager protection or compensation designed to give you the illusion that the breach is under control and your personal risk has been protected or eliminated. This could not be further from the truth.

If you’ve been the victim of a data or privacy breach, you may be entitled to compensation, often through a privacy class action lawsuit. The U&C experienced attorneys can help you navigate the legal process, gather evidence, and pursue the compensation you deserve in the complex and ever evolving world of cyber security and big data.
