What Should You Do If Your Info Has Been Compromised?
The specific nature and circumstances of the data breach, as well as your jurisdiction’s laws and regulations, will dictate the best course of action. Consulting with one of our attorneys can offer clarity specific to your situation. Here are some general steps that can be helpful:
- Evaluate the Breach: Understand what type of data was compromised. Was it just an email address, or did the breach involve sensitive information like Social Security numbers, bank account details, or other personal data?
- Protect Yourself: Before reaching out to an attorney:
- Change passwords for the affected service and other accounts where you use the same or similar passwords.
- Monitor your accounts for suspicious activity.
- Consider placing a fraud alert or credit freeze on your credit report if financial data was exposed.
- Contact the Company Involved: Often, companies that have suffered a breach will offer affected individuals services such as credit monitoring or identity theft protection for free. Make sure to understand what you’re being offered and how to take advantage of these services.
- Call Grungo Law: If you believe you’ve suffered damages or are at significant risk of future harm due to the breach:
- A New Jersey injury lawyer, especially one who specializes in data breaches or privacy issues, can help assess the potential risk and damages.
- They can advise you on your rights and potential legal remedies. This may include joining a class-action lawsuit if one has been initiated.
- Document Everything: Keep records of any correspondence related to the breach, any costs you’ve incurred as a result, and any evidence of identity theft or fraud stemming from the breach.
- Stay Updated: Data breach situations can evolve. The company might discover more information about the breach, or there might be new reports on how the stolen data is being used. Staying informed can help you make decisions about further protective steps or legal actions.
