Texas Department of Insurance Data Breach Investigation
The Lyon Firm is actively involved in personal privacy and data theft cases and is currently investigating the Texas Department of Insurance data breach claims.
The Texas Department of Insurance recently announced a data security event that may have impacted up to 1.8 million individuals. The Texas Department of Insurance first disclosed the incident on March 24, which may have compromised the following information:
- Phone numbers
- Dates of births
- Social security numbers
- Worker compensation claims
The origins of the data breach are not altogether clear, and the information available at this time says only that a security vulnerability affecting web applications exposed user data. It’s also unclear how long the data was exposed.
