Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Mortgage Industry Advisory Corporation (MIAC) data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
On April 6, 2023, the Mortgage Industry Advisory Corporation was informed of a cyberattack on its computer systems. It was discovered that the attack was a ransomware incident and that an unauthorized individual gained access to and stole certain files from MIAC's systems between April 5 and April 6, 2023.
On August 16, 2023, it was determined that information pertaining to Embrace Home Loans was among the compromised data. MIAC has no knowledge of any attempted misuse of the information as a result of the breach; however, the potentially accessed information includes names, Social Security numbers, loan numbers, and property addresses.
A total of 8,973 individuals may have been affected by this incident. MIAC is based out of New York and provides pricing, risk management, and accounting solutions to mortgage and financial services companies.
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 Mortgage Industry Advisory Corporation to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
