Mediant Data Breach Lawsuit
On August 21, 2019, Stueve Siegel Hanson filed a class action lawsuit against Mediant Communications Inc. relating to a data breach announced in May 2019. Mediant is a New York-based company that provides mutual funds and real estate investment trusts with mailing and document processing services and other services in connection with their annual and special shareholder meetings, including the distribution of proxy materials, coordination of votes, and tabulation of voting results.
On April 1, 2019, hackers obtained access to certain Mediant business email accounts that included investor information from a number of mutual funds and companies. The hackers were able to exfiltrate individuals’ sensitive personal information including names, addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, tax identification numbers, and account IDs, among other sensitive information.
Mediant determined who was affected on May 10, 2019, and thereafter began notifying affected individuals by mail. If you received a data breach notification letter from Mediant and are interested in participating in the lawsuit, please call 816.714.7105.
