Kelly Insurance Didn't Keep Your Data Safe

Kelly Insurance had a big problem. They didn't protect people's private information the way they should. A lot of people, 7,747 to be exact, had their personal details stolen. This included Social Security numbers and health insurance info. These are very important and can lead to big problems if they get into the wrong hands.

When bad people get this info, they can steal identities and cause a lot of trouble. People affected might lose money, see their credit scores drop, and spend lots of time fixing these problems.

This shows how important it is for companies like Kelly Insurance to keep information safe. We live in a world where data moves around easily. So, it's crucial to have strong security to stop hackers. Companies must do this to keep the trust of everyone they serve.

How Did Something Like This Even Happen?

  • In early March 2023, Kelly Insurance found out that someone sneaked into their computer systems without permission.
  • It took until May for them to figure out that the hackers didn't just peek around; they actually took files with them.
  • It wasn't until early November, many months later, that they told the people whose data was stolen about the breach.

Kelly Insurance's Data Breach Is A Breach of Your Privacy

When your personal info gets into the wrong hands, it's like someone has secretly made a copy of your house keys. This person can now pretend to be you and easily make their way through your life. They might start using your name to get credit cards, take out loans, and do other money-related things that could leave you with a lot of debt.

The problems from this don't just go away over time — they stick to your identity like a shadow. Every move you make could be followed by worries about credit checks and money problems. This could ruin big moments like buying your dream home or getting a car. The scariest part is that some personal details, like your Social Security number, never change. They stay the same your whole life, making them an easy target for thieves. This means the trouble from identity theft could last forever, following you at every stage of your life, even into retirement.

It's important to know that identity theft affects more than just your wallet. It can make you feel stressed and worried about your safety and future. The thought of someone else ruining your good name and credit is very upsetting.

In short, keeping your personal information safe isn't just a one-time thing; it's something you have to keep doing, like changing your house locks to keep out intruders. You need to watch your financial statements and look out for anything strange. If your personal info is stolen, getting your identity back can be tough and take a long time. It's a problem that could last your whole life.

What's Being Done About It

There's a class action lawsuit against Kelly Insurance, pretty much saying they didn't do their job to protect your information and then took too long to tell you about it. The lawsuit is all about getting justice for the folks whose information was stolen and making sure Kelly Insurance—and any other company—learns to do better.
