Has your business been harmed by the Equifax Data Breach?
OVERVIEW OF COMPLAINT
On September 19, 2017, the first class action was filed on behalf of small businesses across the United States and their owners against Equifax for damages (current and future) resulting from the September 2017 cybersecurity incident that impacted approximately 143 million individuals and their businesses. Equifax was hacked by criminals and as a result, personally identifiable information (PII), including names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses. driver's license numbers and credit card numbers was stolen.
Many of the 143 million individuals whose PII was hacked are also owners of small businesses that heavily rely on personal and business credit to operate and provide for families all across this country. There are about 28 million small businesses in America representing more than 99% of all American companies. Indeed, small businesses employ half of the private sector work force, and since 1995, small businesses have created about two out of every three net new jobs – 65% of the nation’s total job creation. Business loans and credit have historically been critical for small businesses to survive because, unlike large firms, small businesses lack access to public institutional debt and equity capital markets.
Based on the allegations above and below, the Consumer Plaintiff and Small Business Plaintiffs and their respective Class Members are seeking to certify two nationwide classes, a Consumer Class and Small Business Class, to hold Equifax responsible for the damage caused to them and this country by the most recent Data Breach.
