We are currently on the leadership team prosecuting Capital One for the largest date breach—over 100 million people—in U.S. history (See Villodas v. Capital One Bank (USA) N.A. 1:20-cv-20536-UU). Personal information, including Social Security numbers, names, addresses, dates of birth and self-reported income were stolen.
Cybersecurity is often a very low priority for companies who focus their resources on making money instead of safeguarding our sensitive information. Identity theft happens everyday in our country because these companies make it far too easy.
Data breaches have become a very significant problem in recent years because more and more entities are buying and selling our information online. There is also a rising black market for trading your information illegally that contributes to the higher risk that your information is being sought by cyber-criminals.
If you think you may have been affected by a data breach, please contact us today for a free consultation.
