CLASS ACTION UPDATE: Law Office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC Reminds Investors of Deadline in Class Action Against Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF)

BALA CYNWYD, PA / ACCESSWIRE / October 16, 2019 / Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC reminds investors of the deadline to file to be a lead plaintiff regarding claims against Capital One Financial Corporation ("Capital One" or the "Company") (NYSE:COF - News) for possible breaches of Federal Securities law.

On July 29, 2019, Capital One announced in a press release that it had suffered a data breach affecting over 106 million individuals in the United States and Canada. On this news, shares of Capital One fell $5.71 or nearly 5.9% to close at $91.21 on July 30 2019.

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company did not maintain robust information security protections, and its protection did not shield personal information against security breaches; (2) such deficiencies heightened the Company's exposure to a cyber-attack; and (3) as a result, Capital One's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
