Murphy Law Firm is investigating claims on behalf of all individuals whose personal and confidential information was potentially compromised in the data breach involving Sheet Metal Air Rail Workers (“SMART”). On or around September 9, 2023, SMART detected unusual activity on its computer network, indicating a data breach. Based on a forensic investigation, SMART confirmed that cybercriminals infiltrated its inadequately secured computer systems and acquired the sensitive personal information of 62,939 individuals, including names and Social Security numbers.
As a result of the data breach, these individuals’ personal and highly confidential information may be in the hands of cybercriminals who can place the information for sale on the dark web or use the information to perpetrate identity fraud.
Murphy Law Firm is evaluating legal options, including a potential class action lawsuit, to recover damages for individuals who were affected by the data breach.
