What's This Settlement About?
A class action lawsuit has been settled against Morgan Stanley in the amount of $60,000,000. The lawsuit alleges claims against Morgan Stanley, an American multinational investment bank and financial services company. In the lawsuit, evidence was brought forward against Morgan Stanley involved in two separate data security incidents
that compromised the personal identifying information of about 15 million of their past and current clients.
The lawsuit also alleges that in 2016 and 2019, Morgan Stanley failed
to properly dispose of IT (information technology) equipment
containing clients' PII. Many of these
IT devices were sold to third parties and still remain unaccounted for.
This situation may have potentially led to access gained by third parties or unscrupulous actors seeking to use sensitive and private information of Morgan Stanley's customers. The IT equipment at issue may have retained Morgan Stanley client PII
• Social Security Numbers,
• Maiden Names,
• Past and Current Work and Home Addresses,
• Driver's License Numbers,
• Personal Income,
• Asset Holding Information,
• Telephone and Cell Numbers,
• Family Members' Information,
• Dates of Birth.
All of this information is considered PII and can lead to serious compromises of identity that leads to untold amounts of damages.
