Federman & Sherwood Initiates an Investigation of the Data Breach at Altice USA, Inc.

February 12, 2020 GMT

OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2020--

Federman & Sherwood, a boutique litigation law firm that has been appointed counsel in several data breach cases, initiated an investigation into the data breach at Altice USA, Inc. (“Altice”). In November 2019, multiple Altice employees fell victim to a phishing email campaign, resulting in criminal actors gaining access to employee email accounts. The compromised accounts contained significant amounts of sensitive personal information belonging to current and former employees and possibly some customers as well. Personal information that may have been accessed included names, employment information, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and some drivers’ license numbers. Altice began notifying affected individuals in February 2020. The personal information compromised by Altice in this data breach will expose breach victims to identity theft and other forms of fraud.

If you have information about this data breach, want to discuss this data breach, obtain further information or participate in potential litigation, or have any questions or concerns regarding this notice, please contact Tiffany Peintner at trp@federmanlaw.com or visit our firm’s website at www.federmanlaw.com.
