Beasley Allen Takes on AT&T in Data Breach Lawsuit 

Beasley Allen has initiated a class action lawsuit against telecommunications giant AT&T on behalf of customers affected by a recent cyberattack and consequent data breach.

The lawsuit represents Scott Mathews and potentially thousands of other AT&T customers who have had their personal information compromised.

The lawsuit, filed in response to what is described as AT&T’s failure to adequately protect customer data, alleges that sensitive information, including names, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, birth dates, account numbers, and passcodes, was left vulnerable to cybercriminals.

The breach came to light around March 31, when AT&T began notifying affected customers of a “security incident.” However, the lawsuit criticizes the telecom provider for not disclosing vital details about the breach, such as the specific timeline of the events and the reasons behind the delay of over three years in informing current and former customers about the cyberattack.

Plaintiffs argue that AT&T’s negligence has exposed them and many others to significant risks, with their private information now potentially in the hands of data thieves. This breach has raised concerns about AT&T’s security measures and their effectiveness in protecting customer data.

Considering these events, Beasley Allen is not only seeking compensation for those impacted by the breach but also urging AT&T to implement stricter security measures to prevent such incidents seeking compensation for those impacted by the breach and in the future. As the case progresses, it will likely shed more light on the extent of the data breach and the steps AT&T will need to take to restore customer trust.
