Northwest Florida State College Data Breach

It was recently revealed that an internal review discovered that at least one of Northwest Florida State College’s servers was hacked between May 21, 2012 and September 24, 2012. It is believed that the more than 3,000 employees, 76,000 Northwest College students, and 200,000 students eligible for Bright Future scholarships, potentially had their private information exposed, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, ethnicity, and genders, putting these persons at risk for identity theft.

Disclosure of personal information such as social security information is unlawful, and we have brought lawsuits on behalf of victims of such disclosures in the TRICARE/SAIC, Zappos, Sutter Health and Saint Joseph data breaches.
