A class action settlement has been reached in litigation against Presidio, Inc., Presidio Holdings Inc., Presidio LLC, Presidio Networked Solutions LLC, Presidio Networked Solutions Group, LLC and Presidio Technology Capital, LLC (collectively “Presidio”) relating to a data security incident that occurred in or about March 2020 (the “Data Incident”).  The case is known as LaPrairie v. Presidio, Inc., et al., Case No. 1:21-cv-08795-JFK in the Southern District of New York.  Presidio denies all of the claims.

The proposed Settlement will provide benefits to Class Members whose personal information may have been affected by the Data Incident.

Nature of the Case

On March 13, 2020, Presidio discovered it was the victim of a Data Incident. An unknown third-party gained unauthorized access to Presidio’s software and/or systems, which may have resulted in the disclosure of employees and former employees’ information, including names, Social Security numbers, compensation and tax information. Presidio took immediate steps to remediate and investigate the Data Incident, and has notified current and former employees whose personal information may have been compromised in the Data Incident.

Thereafter, Eric LaPrairie filed a class action lawsuit alleging that he and other individuals were affected by the Data Incident. Eric LaPrairie is the “Plaintiff” or “Class Representative” and he sued the Presidio “Defendants” on behalf of people who have similar claims (the “Class”). The lawsuit alleges Presidio did not adequately protect the Class Members personal information. Presidio denies all allegations of wrongdoing.

Who Is a Class Member?

You are a Class Member and are affected by the proposed Settlement if you were notified by Presidio that your personal information may have been compromised in the Data Incident that occurred in or about March 2020.
