IBM Data Breach | Join the Class Action MOVEit Lawsuit

The Lyon Firm is investigating data breach claims linked to IBM and several other companies that utilized Progress Software’s file transfer platform. The MOVEit platform was hacked in late May 2023, compromising the personal data of over 90 million individuals worldwide. Contact our privacy lawyers to learn more about the data security incident and to join the existing IBM data breach class action. 

Plaintiffs allege that International Business Machines Corp. failed to protect the personal information of millions of people when a cyberattack on Progress Software Corp.‘s MOVEit file-transfer app resulted in the access of IBM data. The class action complaints argue that IBM negligently chose to use the MOVEit software to handle the transfer of sensitive information even though the software contained major security vulnerabilities.

The personal information exposed in the IBM data breach includes names, Social Security numbers, Medicaid and Medicare ID numbers, and other information. It is critical to be proactive when you are notified of a data theft event to help reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft.

Can You Join the IBM Class Action Lawsuit?

If you have been notified by IBM or another company regarding the MOVEit cyberattack, contact an attorney to review your claim. We believe very strongly that companies that collect and store your personal data have a duty to protect it with reasonably secure networks, and to contract vendors that adhere to the same strong IT security standards. That principal stands for all companies, and in particular for a blue chip tech company like IBM that has the resources to protect your information.
