Sovos Compliance Data Breach Investigation

The Lyon Firm is reviewing Sovos Compliance data breach notices sent out to approximately 215,000 individuals after the company discovered it was a target in the massive MOVEit software attack. Contact our lawyers to discuss your next steps.

In August 2023, Sovos Compliance LLC filed a notice of data breach on behalf of multiple companies after learning about a vulnerability in the MOVEit file-transfer application. The application used by Sovos contained a vulnerability that compromised the data of millions worldwide.

In the subsequent reports, Sovos explained that the incident resulted in an unauthorized party being able to access names and Social Security numbers. Sovos began sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals with more details and contact information.

If you received a data breach notification from Sovos Compliance referring to personal information you provided to Allegis Group, Barrett Business Services Inc., Delta Dental of Iowa, GreenSky, or Midland States Bank, you could have your personal information at risk.

Contact a data breach lawyer to help you learn more about how to protect yourself from fraud or identity theft, and to discuss possible legal action.
