What is a data breach?
A data breach occurs when a hacker or other unauthorized party secretly gains access to sensitive consumer information stored on a company’s servers through some kind of cyberattack. Once a hacker obtains consumer data, they can use that information to commit identity theft or for other criminal purposes. Sometimes hackers sell the data they obtain through a cyberattack to the highest bidder.
No one can say for sure why a hacker targeted your data during a data breach or what they plan to do with it, but having your sensitive information in the hands of an unauthorized party exposes you to a increased risk of identity theft.
As consumers, we all provide personal data to businesses for a variety of reasons. We trust these companies to protect our private data and keep this information secure. Unfortunately, data breaches happen frequently.
Lawyers are investigating data events like this security breach to determine the legal rights of consumers who trusted companies with their sensitive information. Often, hackers target companies that rely on outdated or inadequate data security measures. If it is determined that Nuna Baby Essentials, Inc. has, in fact, failed to adequately protect consumer data in one way or another, affected individuals may be eligible for compensation for their financial losses.
What can you do after a data breach?
While consumers should be careful to only provide data to legitimate businesses for legitimate purposes, even well-known, legally established businesses can become the target of a data breach cyberattack.
Consumers who receive a data breach notification letter should carefully read the entire letter and retain it for future reference.
If the business affected by the breach offers consumers credit monitoring or identity theft protection services, the consumer should follow the instructions outlined in the letter to promptly register for those services. Do not assume that you are automatically subscribed to these services.
