An Important Update on Our eDiscovery Data Breach
TO OUR CLIENTS:
As you may have read in the New York Times, O'Magawd Mikoreer Izova, LLP was recently involved in a minor discovery mishap. Using a client's outside e-discovery service to conduct a review of voluminous documents, a (now former) O'Magawd attorney accidentally produced thousands of documents without proper review or redaction.
As I'm sure you're aware, much eDiscovery technology is complicated and not exactly intuitive. Human error with such technology is surprisingly common. Here, a misunderstanding of the vendor technology used left most of the documents unreviewed, including confidential and personally identifiable client information.
Further, the documents were produced via unsecure CD-ROM. Some of the CD-ROMs appear to have been misrouted and are not currently accounted for.
Exposing your confidential, personal information was never our intention. We're doing our best to claw back the erroneous production and search down the missing CD-ROMs. (If you have any information, please fax it to us ASAP!)
In the meantime, our team is available to set up credit monitoring and identity theft protection at a greatly reduced cost to you.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Sometimes, these things just happen.
