Harper Segui appointed Co-Lead counsel in Blackbaud data breach MDL
U.S. District Judge J. Michelle Childs appointed Whitfield Bryson attorney Harper Segui as co-lead counsel for Plaintiffs who allege software company Blackbaud compromised the private information of millions of people worldwide.
For years, cybercriminals have targeted software companies with ransomware attacks to gain access to private and sensitive data. Cybercriminals launched a ransomware attack on Blackbaud, a cloud-based software company in February 2020, and three months passed before they discovered and stopped the attack. They then waited another two months to alert the public.
Harper Segui, of Whitfield Bryson LLP represent the proposed classes in these matters. The lawsuit is styled In re: Blackbaud Inc. Customer Data Security Breach Litigation, MDL no. 2972, is filed in U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina.
