Airport Store Operator Negligence Caused Huge Damages in 2020 Hack, Class Action Lawsuit Alleges
Anne Bradley-Smith reports:
Airport store operator, Paradies Shops LLC, which runs more than 850 retail and 170 restaurant locations in more than 100 airports across the United States, was negligent with employee data and caused huge damages to more than 76,000 employees after a 2020 data breach, a new class action lawsuit alleges.
Ramirez, and more than 76,000 other airport store employees, had their personal information stolen in an October 2020 data breach and reports of the breach were known from as early as the next day. However, the class action lawsuit says that it took more than eight months for The Paradies Shops to begin notifying affected staff of the breach.
According to the class action, the airport store operator had not publicly reported when it first learned of the breach, and it took until July 2021 for it to begin notifying various states Attorneys General.
