Judge approves UH data breach settlement

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Circuit Court Judge has approved a settlement for victims of five data breaches that occurred at the University of Hawaii and its campuses over the past two years.

The data breaches potentially exposed personal data of over 90,000 faculty, students, alumni, and guests at University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of Hawaii at West Oahu, Kapiolani Community College, and Honolulu Community College.

The lawsuit, which was the first data breach class action brought in the state of Hawaii, provides two years of credit monitoring and fraud restoration services for victims.

"Credit monitoring and credit restoration services may cost as much as $15 to $20 per month if purchased individually. We are extremely pleased that the University has negotiated a settlement package that provides these services to every class member who wants them," noted Thomas Grande, one of the attorneys representing the class.

The University issued the following statement:

The University of Hawai'i is pleased that Judge Patrick Border gave final approval to the class action settlement in this case. The settlement provides that the University will pay for two years of credit monitoring and fraud restoration services to each class member who signs up for the services by May 1, 2012. The University hopes as many class members as possible will sign up. The University remains committed to continuing to work to safeguard the personal information of its students, faculty, staff and alumni.

University faculty, students, and alumni  can call 1-855-205-6935 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time with questions or for more information. Or go to www.UHdatabreachlawsuit.com
