Razer Awarded $6.5M Following Lawsuit Win

On December 9th, Singapore’s High Court ruled in favor of Razer after the company sued the IT organization Capgemini following a data leak that affected thousands of customers in September 2020. According to The Straits Times, the court awarded Razer $6.5 million in damages.

In September 2020, order details and the shipping information of thousands of customers were accidentally leaked by Capgemini, causing Razer to suffer a loss of $6.1 million in profits. As a result, Razer sued the IT vendor later that year.

According to The Straits Times, a configuration error took place, allowing access to the application without user authentication. Based on a written decision from Judge Lee Seiu Kin, Capgemini had breached its contract with Razer while also being negligent in response to the login issues. In turn, Razer was declared the winner of the lawsuit.
