Major Law Firm Hit by Ransomware

US law firm Campbell, Conroy & O'Neil, P.C., known for working with many high profile Fortune 500 and Global 500 companies in various sectors, issued a press release today about a data breach from a February 2021 ransomware attack.

Campbell, Conroy & O'Neil's current and past clients include: Home Depot, Ford Motor Company, US Airways, Monsanto Company, Apple Computers, Exxon Mobile, Caterpillar Inc, Marriot International, Anheuser-Busch, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and many, many more.
Forensic investigators were called in and found that "certain individuals' names, dates of birth, driver's license numbers / state identification numbers, financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, payment card information, medical information, health insurance information, biometric data, and/or online account credentials (i.e. usernames and passwords)."
The FBI was notified and while Campbell, Conroy & O'Neil is offering free credit monitoring for 2 years. Because of the fallout of these attacks, more data breaches are likely to follow.
The thing most people do not realize is that while the ransomware encrypts data it is also copied and taken by the perpetrator. The question then becomes who's data was stolen? Was it the employees? Was it the customers? This could have long term affects on many lives and is a very big deal.
