Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Gaston College data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Gaston College, a community college in Dallas, North Carolina, has recently disclosed a data breach that occurred between February 21 and 22, 2023. An investigation of the incident revealed that unauthorized individuals managed to access Gaston College's network, gaining access to specific files and folders within its system.
According to the college’s online notice of the incident, information exposed in the breach may include individuals’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, financial account information, medical/treatment information, student information and employment information.
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 Gaston College to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
