Morgan Stanley Hack

In late 2020, investment bank Morgan Stanley's network was compromised, allowing unauthorized access to customers' sensitive personal information. Morgan Stanley first acknowledged its customers' information was disclosed in July 2021. The hack likely involved the theft of tens of thousands of customers' data.

When large companies fail to protect their customers' sensitive personal information, they may be liable for penalties, lost funds, and the cost of remedial measures like credit monitoring and added identity theft protections.


Residents of California are afforded additional protections under the state's Consumer Privacy Act. Californians affected by the breach should receive a letter like the one posted here.
