Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Cleveland, Ohio-based Parker-Hannifin Corporation (“Parker”) for failing to safeguard sensitive employee information in a data breach that occurred between March 11 and March 14, 2022. Parker announced the data breach exposed employees’ personal information after the notorious Conti ransomware gang allegedly published this data online last month. Parker has confirmed that protected employee hiring information, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, driver’s license numbers, U.S. passport numbers financial account information (bank account and routing numbers), online account usernames/passwords, enrollment information, and other sensitive personal and health information may have been accessed or acquired.
Hackers may have already been able to sell the compromised information or otherwise fraudulently misuse it for their personal gain. As a result of previous similar data breaches, victims of data theft have been forced to spend money on credit monitoring services and/or the impact of the fraudulent misuse of their personal information.
Individuals affected by the Parker Data breach may have already suffered (and/or are at a continued risk of suffering) one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to the sensitive information that was compromised as a result of the Parker data breach: identity theft, including medical identity theft, suspicious credit and/or debit card charges, unauthorized withdrawals from a checking or savings account, requests for government services or loans, or credit accounts fraudulently opened in their name.
