Bankers Life Data Breach:
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Bankers Life data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
In a recent breach at Bankers Life, a threat actor successfully conducted a "SIM swapping" attack, enabling them to gain unauthorized access to company data. The attack was made possible by a retailer for a major wireless carrier allowing a senior officer's phone number to be swapped without proper authorization. An investigation revealed that the unauthorized access led to the potential exposure of personal information such as names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and policy numbers.
Approximately 45,842 individuals are reportedly affected by the insurance company's data breach, which was discovered on November 29, 2023. Notices of the data breach are being sent to both adults affected by the breach and the parents or guardians of children whose information may have also been exposed.
Bankers Life is the marketing brand of Bankers Life and Casualty Company, Medicare Supplement insurance policies issued by Colonial Penn Life Insurance Company and Washington National Insurance Company, and select policies sold in New York by Bankers Conseco Life Insurance Company. Bankers Life and Casualty Company, as well as Colonial Penn and Washington National, are part of CNO Financial Group.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Bankers Life to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
