Was Your Personal Information Exposed Though A Data Breach?
When you do business with commercial entities or otherwise interface with responsible parties who handle your financial and/or identity information, you have every right to expect them to safeguard your sensitive, private data. Unfortunately, many people are regularly harmed through data breaches that expose them to identity theft and worse outcomes.
Perhaps you received a notification from a credit card company, a credit rating company or your mortgage lender disclosing that data was breached and personal details about you, such as the following, were likely included in the leaked information:
- Your credit card number(s) and/or other account numbers
- Your Social Security number
- Your telephone number and address
- Detailed biographical information about you
- Your health records
- Your work schedule
- DNA-derived or family-based genetic information
Have You Suffered Tangible Losses Already?
Perhaps the situation is more dire than simple exposure. You may have learned that accounts were set up in your name without your authorization. You may have experienced serious losses already after your financial accounts were hacked into and altered by way of breached data. Whatever security exposure or tangible losses you have experienced by way of a data breach, you should get a solid legal opinion about resources available to you.
