Equifax Data Breach

On September 7, Equifax announced a cyber security incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. In light of the Equifax data breach, your credit union is taking action to keep our members informed.

Based on the company's investigation, the unauthorized access occurred from mid-May through July 2017. Criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. The company has found no evidence of unauthorized activity on Equifax's core consumer or commercial credit reporting databases.

The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers. In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed. As part of its investigation of this application vulnerability, Equifax also identified unauthorized access to limited personal information for certain UK and Canadian residents. Equifax will work with UK and Canadian regulators to determine appropriate next steps. The company has found no evidence that personal information of consumers in any other country has been impacted.

Equifax has established a dedicated website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, to help consumers determine if their information has been impacted by the breach. Equifax is also offering a free year of identity theft monitoring and protection available on the website to all U.S. consumers. Updated today, enrolling in the provided service does not waive any rights for consumers to take legal action.

A good source to learn more about Identity theft and protecting your credit is annualcreditreport.com.  You can review your credit reports from Experian, Equifax and Transunion once a year at no cost.  The link is on the home page of our website.
