WYZE CAMERA | WHAT HAPPENED?

Dec. 26 – A Texas based consulting firm, Twelve Security, alerted that Wyze Cameras had been exposed in a data breach that affected its users (24%of which in the EST timezone). On the same day, Wyze’s CEO posted on the company’s forum that they had been alerted of the breach and were investigating the breach.

Dec. 27 – Wyze’s CEO updated his original post to confirm the data breach and to blame an employee for it. According to him, Wyze needs to “revisit all Wyze security guidelines in all aspects, better communicate those protocols to Wyze employees, and bump-up priority for user-requested security features beyond 2-factor authentication.”

Dec. 30 – New York Times published an article about the breach. Journalist Sandra E. Garcia interviewed Jennifer King, the director of consumer privacy at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, who said “The more all of this data goes on the cloud, the more vulnerable we are. If the company isn’t necessarily practicing the best security practices you can do all you can and you’re still going to be exposed.

FAQ

Yes. Please use our contact form to request a free case evaluation. Tell us your story, and one of our lawyers will respond to tell you if we think we can help.

We work almost all of our cases under contingent fee arrangements. If we take your case under a contingent fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingent fee is either based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our client (which generally ranges from one-third of the recovery up to 40%) or the amount of work we perform on your case, multiplied by our current hourly rates. The percentage we will charge in your case depends on the type of case, when your case resolves, and whether you request us to advance litigation costs (including filing fees, postage, expert witness fees, etc.). Generally, the percentage is higher if we are advancing litigation costs and your case does not resolve early.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long or how many hours will it take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different in terms of the complexity. For instance, a simple breach of contract matter is likely to get resolved significantly faster than a complicated lawsuit involving multiple parties, numerous claims, complex issues of law, and extensive discovery. The other parties’ cooperation, the attorneys’ schedules, as well as the number of other cases on the court’s docket are also the factors.
