If you received a data breach notification, it is essential you understand what is at risk. The data breach lawyers at Console & Associates, P.C. are actively investigating the Bolton Global Capital data breach on behalf of people whose information was exposed. As a part of this investigation, we are providing free consultations to anyone affected by the breach who is interested in learning more about the risks of identity theft, what they can do to protect themselves, and what their legal options may be to obtain compensation from Bolton Global Capital. Last year, 1,862 data breaches affected more than 189 million people. On average, victims of identity theft spend 200 hours and over $1,300 recovering their identity. Many victims also suffer emotional distress, credit damage, and may even end up with a criminal record. Taking immediate action is the best way to prevent the worst consequences of a data breach. What We Know So Far About the Bolton Global Capital Data Breach Bolton Global Capital is a wealth management company and brokerage/advisor based in Bolton, MA. The company was founded in 1985 with the opening of a single office. Since then, Bolton Global Capital has grown to include over 50 affiliated offices across the world. The company currently manages more than $12 billion in client assets. In addition to wealth-management services, Bolton Global Capital also provides trustee services, retirement planning services, cash management services and lending services to its clients. According to a letter from the company to affected parties, on September 8, 2021, Bolton Global Capital discovered unauthorized activity on its computer network. In response, the company secured its systems and engaged in an investigation to learn more about the incident and whether any consumer information was compromised. The company’s investigation revealed that an unauthorized party gained access to certain systems between August 12 and September 9, 2021. Upon learning of the extent of the security breach, Bolton Global Capital then reviewed the affected files to determine what information was accessible to the unauthorized party. On February 8, 2022, the company completed its review of the files. While the compromised information varies by consumer, it may include your Social Security number, driver’s license number, and bank account number. On March 10, 2022, Bolton Global Capital began sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals whose information was compromised as a result of the recent data security incident. The Bolton Global Capital breach may have impacted as many as 6,354 individuals. More About the Causes and Risks of Data Breaches Often, data breaches are the result of a hacker gaining unauthorized access to a company’s computer systems with the intention of obtaining sensitive consumer information. While no one can know the reason why a hacker targeted Bolton Global Capital, it is common for hackers and other criminals to identify those companies believed to have weak data security systems or vulnerabilities in their networks. Once a cybercriminal gains access to a computer network, they can then access and remove any data stored on the compromised servers. While in most cases a company experiencing a data breach can identify which files were accessible, there may be no way for the company to tell which files the hacker actually accessed or whether they removed any data. While the fact that your information was compromised in a data breach does not necessarily mean it will be used for criminal purposes, being the victim of a data breach puts your sensitive data in the hands of an unauthorized person. As a result, you are at an increased risk of identity theft and other frauds, and criminal use of your information is a possibility that should not be ignored. Given this reality, individuals who receive a Bolton Global Capital data breach notification should take the situation seriously and remain vigilant in checking for any signs of unauthorized activity. Businesses like Bolton Global Capital are responsible for protecting the consumer data in their possession. If evidence emerges that Bolton Global Capital failed to adequately protect your sensitive information, you may be eligible for financial compensation through a data breach lawsuit. What Are Consumers’ Remedies in the Wake of the Bolton Global Capital Data Breach? When customers decided to do business with Bolton Global Capital, they assumed that the company would take their privacy concerns seriously. And it goes without saying that consumers would think twice before giving a company access to their information if they knew it wasn’t going to be secure. Thus, data breaches such as this one raise questions about the adequacy of a company’s data security system. When a business, government entity, non-profit organization, school, or any other organization accepts and stores consumer data, it also accepts a legal obligation to ensure this information remains private. The United States data breach laws allow consumers to pursue civil data breach claims against organizations that fail to protect their information. Of course, given the recency of the Bolton Global Capital data breach, the investigation into the incident is still in its early stages. And, as of right now, there is not yet any evidence suggesting Bolton Global Capital is legally responsible for the breach. However, that could change as additional information about the breach and its causes is revealed. If you have questions about your ability to bring a data breach class action lawsuit against Bolton Global Capital, reach out to a data breach attorney as soon as possible. What Should You Do if You Receive a Bolton Global Capital Data Breach Notification? If Bolton Global Capital sends you a data breach notification letter, you are among those whose information was compromised in the recent breach. While this isn’t a time to panic, the situation warrants your attention. Below are a few important steps you can take to protect yourself from identity theft and other fraudulent activity: Identify What Information Was Compromised: The first thing to do after learning of a data breach is to carefully review the data breach letter sent. The letter will tell you what information of yours was accessible to the unauthorized party. Be sure to make a copy of the letter and keep it for your records. If you have trouble understanding the letter or what steps you can take to protect yourself, a data breach lawyer can help. Limit Future Access to Your Accounts: Once you determine what information of yours was affected by the breach, the safest play is to assume that the hacker orchestrating the attack stole your data. While this may not be the case, it’s better to be safe than sorry. To prevent future access to your accounts, you should change all passwords and security questions for any online account. This includes online banking accounts, credit card accounts, online shopping accounts, and any other account containing your personal information. You should also consider changing your social media account passwords and setting up multi-factor authentication where it is available. Protect Your Credit and Your Financial Accounts: After a data breach, companies often provide affected parties with free credit monitoring services. Signing up for the free credit monitoring offers some significant protections and doesn’t impact any of your rights to pursue a data breach lawsuit against the company if it turns out they were legally responsible for the breach. You should contact a credit bureau to request a copy of your credit report—even if you do not notice any signs of fraud or unauthorized activity. Adding a fraud alert to your account will provide you with additional protection. Consider Implementing a Credit Freeze: A credit freeze prevents anyone from accessing your credit report. Credit freezes are free and stay in effect until you remove them. Once a credit freeze is in place, you can temporarily lift the freeze if you need to apply for any type of credit. While placing a credit freeze on your accounts may seem like overkill, given the risks involved, it’s justified. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (“ITRC”), placing a credit freeze on your account is the “single most effective way to prevent a new credit/financial account from being opened.” However, just 3% of data breach victims place a freeze on their accounts. Regularly Monitor Your Credit Report and Financial Accounts: Protecting yourself in the wake of a data breach requires an ongoing effort on your part. You should regularly check your credit report and all financial account statements, looking for any signs of unauthorized activity or fraud. You should also call your banks and credit card companies to report the fact that your information was compromised in a data breach.

The forensic investigation revealed that an unknown third party had access to certain systems on Bolton Global’s network from August 12, 2021 to September 9, 2021.
