Personal Data Exposed: Zeroed-In's Major Misstep

What Zeroed-In Did Wrong

Zeroed-In Technologies, a company known for handling human resources data, is now facing a big legal problem. They are dealing with a class action lawsuit that threatens their work and good name. Nicholas Pierce and Misty Hunter are leading this lawsuit against the company. They are upset about a serious data breach.

This was not a small mistake or a tiny leak. It was a big security failure that put sensitive employee information at risk. This included important details like names, birthdates, and Social Security numbers. This kind of data is private and very important to a person's identity and financial safety. If it gets out, it can lead to identity theft, money scams, and other long-term problems.

What's more, this data breach lasted for two whole days, from August 7 to August 8, 2023. During this time, the personal details of employees were not kept safe. This means that people who shouldn't have this information could have taken it. This shows that the company did not take good care of the important data they had. This is why the lawsuit is happening.

The Big Risk to Employees

Here's the thing: the info that got leaked is perfect bait for cybercriminals. It's the kind of data they can use to steal someone's identity or cause other serious digital damage. With this type of personal information slipping through the company's fingers, employees could be facing a heap of headaches like fraud and theft, all because their data wasn't kept under lock and key.

Company's Slow Response Criticized

But wait – it gets worse. The lawsuit slams Zeroed-In not just for letting the data escape but also for dragging their feet for nearly four months when it came time to fess up. This delay didn't just leave folks in the dark; it gave those cyber crooks extra time to plot and possibly carry out their crimes. Knowing sooner could have meant more time for employees to take protective action, but Zeroed-In kept the breach quiet longer than they should have.

Seeking Justice for the Zeroed-In Data Disaster

Those representing the lawsuit aren't playing around. They're after two things: first, money to make up for the possible harm (that's compensatory damages) and maybe even some extra to penalize Zeroed-In (called punitive damages). They want the company to pay up for the trouble and worry they've caused.

What Was So Wrong About This?

In simple terms, a business that handles private info has one job above all else: keep that data safe. Letting it slip into the wrong hands not only risks identity theft but shakes people's trust in the company. And not telling victims right away? That's like knowing there's a hole in the boat but not telling anyone to put on a life jacket.
