Living in the information age has its advantages as well as disadvantages. Information is what makes the world go round, and it helps institutions and corporations make your life run easier, as well as make things more convenient. From your credit cards, to the information you provide apps with, to the security logins to your automated home security system, data is everywhere and vital to the smooth running of any industrialized country. However, what happens when someone or a group of malicious individuals steal your private information by way of a data breach and then proceeds to use it to enrich themselves or hold said information hostage for ransom? It is important to understand that data breaches don’t just happen: someone somewhere must have acted in a negligent manner in order to let this happen, such as not ensuring that there is a tiered security system between you and your information, or even failing to put the data behind a firewall. All these acts constitute negligence, and it’s within your rights to file a legal claim for money damages if your data was the subject of a data breach, something we’d be more than happy to help you with.

Hackers are always on the lookout for sensitive information they can use to either wreak havoc or enrich themselves. They understand that many companies store large amounts of login information, social security information and such like sensitive information at one or two central locations. Hackers use tools that allow them to pry open these servers and then download massive amounts of data all at once.
A data breach can turn your life upside down in a number of ways:
- Your bank account may get cleaned out
- You may find unauthorized charges on your credit or debit card
- You may get locked out of your business email
- You may get locked out of your own home
- You may get blamed for the nefarious activities of another individual
- Sensitive and even embarrassing information may get leaked to the public
- You may become a ransom victim with hackers who threaten you unless you pay up
- You may become a victim of emotional and psychological stress as a result
