Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the ConEd data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Pension Benefit Information, LLC (PBI) has provided notice of a data breach that may have compromised the security of certain information belonging to consumers affiliated with Consolidated Edison Company of New York (ConEd). PBI, which provides audit and address research services to many organizations, including ConEd, utilized Progress Software's MOVEit Transfer software, which had a vulnerability that was exploited by an unauthorized third party. The third party accessed one of PBI's MOVEit Transfer servers and downloaded data on May 29 and May 30, 2023.
After confirming the identities of those whose data may have been exposed during the breach, PBI sent out data breach notices on behalf of ConEd explaining what information was involved and the steps affected individuals can take.
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 ConEd to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
