Deloitte sued over Illinois data “glitch”

Thursday, Jun 18, 2020

* Background is here if you need it. Illinois Policy Institute

A data breach that exposed Social Security numbers and other private information of 32,483 Illinois unemployment applicants resulted in at least one case of identity theft, according to a class-action federal lawsuit.

Briana Julius is suing Deloitte Consulting, alleging the contractor failed to secure personally identifying information which led to fraudulent charges on her bank account and her debit card being shut off. Deloitte was paid $22 million to build and manage the system for the Illinois Department of Employment Security to handle claims from self-employed and gig workers, but soon after the system went online May 11 it was found to be publicly exposing private applicant information.

Julius is from St. Clair County. She is suing in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, with St. Louis attorney Tiffany Yiatras representing her, according to the Madison-St. Clair Record. The class-action suit on behalf of Julius is the third lawsuit against Deloitte for the May data breach. Two groups of Ohio residents also filed lawsuits.

Colorado also experienced a data breach, officials there said.

All three breaches happened around the same time. Click here for more on the Ohio lawsuits.

Julius alleges Deloitte failed to properly secure and safeguard personally identifying information. As a result of the data breach, her bank notified her of fraudulent charges on her bank account that she did not make.

There’s no proof offered in the suit that the two things were related. The state maintains that the only person who saw the data was the person who reported the problem. I guess we’ll find out.

    Somebody should do a story on what Deloitte did to the tollway system.

    Not only the tollway system, but IES (Medicaid, SNAP, TANF) and Child Care System within Illinois. A simple google search of Deloitte leaves a trail of incompetence with every government entity the company has touched.

    Must be a “feature,” not a “glitch.”

    Deloitte screws up everything they touch. The IES system for DHS has been garbage from the beginning. Each fix causes more issues- who is the politician hooking them up with all these contracts- They must be jumping right past the BidBuy contract system and getting hooked up. It is ridiculous.

    They should also be sued for the dumpster fire that is ERP

    “Deloitte screws up everything they touch.” I’m beginning to think them do it on purpose and sell the info….

    They not them. Sorry

    “Deloitte leaves a trail of incompetence with every government entity”

    They must have been using the adage “good enough for government work” or “they will pay us to fix our mistakes” as their quality standards. /s

    Once had a geotechnical engineering professor who advised us to never get involved with a small business because they will sue you for everything you have. Only work with mega-companies because they will pay you to fix your mistakes.

    System didn’t work well to begin with. Data breach seems minor compared to the general incompetence. I’m sure they won’t return a dime though.


Sorry, comments for this post are now closed.
