Cyberattacks, Privacy, And Data Breaches Are Common
Unfortunately, cyberattacks, privacy, and data breaches are all too common in the Internet age. Over 53 million people had their data stolen in the first half of 2022 alone. Having your personal information stolen can have life-altering consequences and cause undue stress for data breach victims.
Businesses have an obligation to their customers to protect their data and inform them if something happens to them. Most companies will usually offer privacy and data breach victims free credit or identity monitoring for a year or two. In some cases, this is enough. But if a business loses customer data in a cyberattack and further investigation reveals it was because of poor cybersecurity systems, it could potentially be sued in a class action lawsuit.
As featured on KIRO News Seattle, Emery | Reddy, PLLC attorney Timothy Emery was quoted as saying ‘“Protecting yourself or your children can be a moot point since most of our private info is already compromised.” and that “It’s an arms race between cyber criminals and companies.”’
“The attorney knows cyber criminals are in it for the money, but he believes companies should spend more on cyber security. He also says a nationwide cyber security standard is needed, whether it’s state or federal law.”
‘“The evidence is there are a lot of companies that just won’t invest in the protections against cyber criminals,” Emery said.’
