A major lawsuit has been filed against the Oklahoma Department of Securities over the data breach that occurred back in December 2018. The data breach was said have allegedly published the names, social security numbers, and other personal information of around 300,000 people to the internet. The department was said to have caused the data breach due to negligently misconfiguring a new firewall that was installing with the help of a consultant. The lawsuit continues to allegedly discuss how the department waited several weeks before notifying law enforcement about the breach which lead to valuable evidence being lost. The lawsuit is currently seeking unspecified monetary damages and injunctive relief.
