Wiggin and Dana LLP Security Incident Notice

Wiggin and Dana LLP ("Wiggin and Dana") recently experienced a security incident that affected their network systems. Wiggin and Dana engaged leading third-party cyber-forensic specialists to assist in the investigation to determine the full nature and scope of the incident.

Wiggin and Dana, with the assistance of the forensic specialists, also conducted a thorough and time-consuming review to identify any information that may have been accessed during this event. Unfortunately, on July 20, 2021, Wiggin and Dana received confirmation that certain files stored within their environment may have been accessed.

While the investigation was able to determine that certain systems were accessed, Wiggin and Dana was unable to determine all of the sensitive information that was actually accessed or acquired by the unauthorized actor. Therefore, in an abundance of caution, Wiggin and Dana is providing notice of this incident and conducting a review of the contents of the impacted systems that may contain sensitive information.

Although this review is still in progress, Wiggin and Dana is providing notice because the investigation confirmed that the following types of information may have been present in the affected systems at the time of the incident: name, date of birth, Social Security number, financial account information, medical/diagnosis/treatment information, and/or government issued identification numbers.

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
