We can help you get your personal credit and background check information straightened out.

As customers, employees, and patients, we assume the companies we entrust with our personal information will protect it. Yet, data breaches compromising personal information have become so pervasive.

When your personal information has been compromised, you need the assistance of experienced data breach attorneys. 

In one of the biggest data breaches ever, a hacker gained access to more than 100 million Capital One customers' accounts and credit card applications earlier this year.

The breach affected around 100 million people in the United States and about 6 million people in Canada, according to Capital One. However, "no credit card account numbers or log-in credentials were compromised and over 99% of Social Security numbers were not compromised," the company noted.

If you're a Capital One customer worried about your data, there are immediate steps you can take to safeguard your personal information.

Paige Thompson is accused of breaking into a Capital One server and gaining access to 140,000 Social Security numbers, 1 million Canadian Social Insurance numbers and 80,000 bank account numbers, in addition to an undisclosed number of people's names, addresses, credit scores, credit limits, balances, and other information going as far back as 2005, according to the bank and the US Department of Justice.

Steps to Take if You Were Affected by the Capital One Breach

• Don't Panic: The bank says it will notify everyone who was affected by the breach, and offer them free credit monitoring and identity protection services. Take advantage of those services.

• Check Your Account: Look over your credit card and banking statements, and report any suspicious activity to the bank as soon as possible. Also, check that you're only visiting secure sites when browsing the web. "Reputable sites begin with https://. This is especially important when entering credit card or other personal information.

• Stay Vigilant: Sign up for a credit monitoring service and be aware of phishing emails and calls following the breach. Capital One is not calling customers to ask for credit card or account information or Social Security numbers over the phone or via email.
