Washington State Department of Licensing Data Breach – Class Action Investigation
Ahdoot Wolfson is interested in speaking with individuals who received a notice letter relating to the Washington state Department of Licensing data breach that was announced on February 4, 2022.
The personal information of more than a quarter million licensed professionals may have been exposed in a breach of a Washington state Department of Licensing database called POLARIS, according to agency officials. The Department of Licensing said it temporarily shut down POLARIS on January 24, 2022 shortly after learning of “suspicious activity involving professional and occupational license data.”
Data stored on POLARIS and potentially impacted by the data breach “may include Social Security numbers, dates of birth, driver license numbers and other personally identifying information.”
The Washington state Department of Licensing’s failure to protect sensitive personal information may be a violation of data privacy and consumer protection laws.
