If you have had your personal information impacted by the Bansley data breach, contact a data privacy attorney to investigate your claim. You may be able to file a class action data breach lawsuit to compensate you for your time, financial losses, and future risk of identity theft.
Bansley and Kiener, a Chicago-based accounting firm that conducts payroll compliance engagements for health, pension, and other benefit plans in the Midwest, has announced a data breach incident that dates back to 2020.
In recent data breach notification letters, Bansley and Kiener details a network security incident that may have involved a great deal of personal information. Reports are suggesting over 274,000 individuals nationwide may have been impacted by the data breach.
Bansley says in a statement that on December 10, 2020, they identified a data security incident that encrypted certain systems. At the time, the company thought the breach was fully contained, then months later learned data had been stolen. On May 24, 2021, Bansley and Kiener learned that files containing personal information, including names and Social Security numbers, had been exfiltrated by an unauthorized user.
Bansley is offering victims access to complimentary one-year subscriptions to credit monitoring, fraud consultation, and identity restoration services. Plaintiffs and attorneys believe more compensation is necessary to properly resolve the data theft issue.
