Association of Texas Professional Educators Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod is involved in the Association of Texas Professional Educators data breach investigation.

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Association of Texas Professional Educators (“ATPE”) data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 426,280 individuals and their personal information.


On February 12, 2024, ATPE noticed suspicious activity on its information technology systems. Subsequently, ATPE conducted an investigation, where it learned that a cybercriminal had accessed the personal information of its consumers. The compromised information includes but is not limited t0: full names, dates of birth, addresses, Social Security numbers, Tax Identification Numbers, medical records, and financial account information.

ATPE recently began informing individuals of these breaches through a mailed notice letter. All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous to affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.

There are a number of things that you should do to keep your information safe. Experts at the NCDOJ recommend that you request fraud alerts from the credit bureaus, sign up for credit monitoring, and keep an eye on your accounts. The FTC likewise offers resources for consumers that have been impacted.


If you received a data breach letter, email, or other notice from ATPE, we would like to hear from you.  Please complete the contact form on this page, send us an email at [email protected], or give us a call at (202) 470-3520.
