Data breaches and cybersecurity are a growing concern. Today’s world brings technology into almost every aspect of our daily lives – from smart devices that run our sprinkler systems to routine credit card purchases – making us vulnerable to theft or misuse of our personal information.
Very vulnerable. A data hacking incident occurs every 39 seconds worldwide, affecting one in three Americans each year. Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first half of 2019.
Not only are the number of security breaches going up, but they are also increasing in severity. Many large organizations have experienced significant threats of confidential data.
Companies that use your personal information have a duty to keep your data safe and comply with data privacy legislation, including the California Privacy Act (CCPA) for residents of California. Cybersecurity incidents expose sensitive information that can leave victims at risk for identity theft and fraud.
The CCPA went into effect on January 1, 2020 and is considered to be one of the broadest state-level privacy laws in U.S. history. The landmark law gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them and permits data breach victims to seek statutory damages when certain conditions are met.
The CCPA applies to companies that do business in California and collect personal information from California residents. It requires businesses to notify any California resident whose personal information was compromised as a result of a data breach. Any business notifying more than 500 California residents as a result of a single breach must also submit a sample copy of that notification to California’s Attorney General.
The CCPA provides a private right of action for California residents. If your personal information is breached by an applicable business, you can collect actual monetary damages or statutory damages from $100 to $750, whichever is greater.
The Arnold Law Firm represents the plaintiff for the first data breach class action case filed under the (CCPA), as well as the first CCPA case to reach resolution.
It is likely that you, or someone you know, has suffered a data breach, perhaps without realizing it. Yet 64 percent of Americans have never checked to see if their personal information may have been compromised.
Most people simply don’t know what steps to take in the event of a data breach or how to find out if they have been involved in one.
Most companies notify affected persons by mail, but they increasingly are using email and posting information on their websites. We suggest that you search your email folders for “notice of data breach” or “notice of security incident.” These notices are commonly screened by spam filters and may not reach your inbox. You may find a data breach notice that you did not know about!
If you are a resident of California, you can also check the California Attorney General website for an up-to-date list of data breaches. Search for vendors you have used. The organization listing will include a sample NOTICE OF DATA BREACH sent to affected individuals with details about the data breach.
If you received a NOTICE OF DATA BREACH that involves financial or highly sensitive information and/or are a resident of California, contact the Arnold Law Firm at (916) 777-7777 to discuss your situation and possible developing legal options.
If a legal complaint has already been filed, you may already be a member of the class action lawsuit. In most cases, you will be included automatically in the class unless you opt out and no further action will be required by you.
