Capital One Data Breach Exposes Sensitive Data of Over 100m Americans

On July 29, 2019, Capital One announced the theft of over 100 million of its customers’ private information, including social security and bank account numbers, resulting from a cybersecurity attack against its data systems. The hacker exploited vulnerabilities in Capital One’s infrastructure located on its Amazon Web Server.

Faruqi & Faruqi is vigorously pursuing claims on behalf of consumers affected by Capital One’s failures to adequately safeguard its customers’ sensitive information. A copy of Faruqi & Faruqi’s recently filed class action complaint against Capital One can be found here.

Faruqi & Faruqi has extensive knowledge and expertise in data breach class actions, representing consumers and shareholders nationwide in actions against Saks, Wendy’s, Arby’s, and Home Depot. If you were affected by a data breach and have been injured as a result, please contact our attorneys to ensure that your rights are fully and immediately protected. Faruqi & Faruqi Partner Ben Heikali and Associate Joshua Nassir are heading this litigation.
