Travelers Data Breach Investigation
Lowey Dannenberg is investigating claims for violations of the common law and the federal Drivers Privacy Protection Act by the Travelers Indemnity Company (“Travelers”) as a result of a 2021 data breach involving highly sensitive personal information, including Driver’s License Numbers.
On November 12, 2021, Travelers discovered suspicious activity relating to their agency portal, which is used by their insurance agents to obtain quotes for customers and prospective customers.

Travelers began notifying affected persons by mail on December 10, 2021.
