In August 2021, over 75 million consumers were impacted by a T-Mobile cyberattack that compromised their personal information. A class action lawsuit followed, resulting in a $350 million settlement. Upon final approval at the hearing on January 20, 2023, this will be the second largest United States data breach award. Michael J. Faul Jr. of Herold Law, P.A. was quoted in a recent InformationWeek article about cyberattacks and subsequent data breach scrutiny and legal ramifications. Michael discussed the surging rate of government investigations against corporations that maintain consumers’ sensitive information including health records, credit card, financial and other personal data.
