What Happened?

On November 10, 2023, Double Eagle Natural Resources, LP detected unauthorized activity within its computer systems. The company responded promptly by securing its network and engaging a third-party forensic team to investigate the extent and nature of the breach. By February 14, 2024, it was confirmed that an unauthorized party had accessed certain personal information. Although there is no current evidence to suggest misuse of the data, Double Eagle has taken this matter seriously and has begun notifying affected individuals.

Information Exposed

The breach potentially exposed personal information, including Social Security numbers. This sensitive data could be used for identity theft if it falls into the wrong hands, although, as of now, there have been no reports of such activity.

Company's Response

Upon discovering the breach, Double Eagle took steps to secure their systems and mitigate any potential impact. They have enhanced their network security to prevent future incidents. Additionally, the company has begun notifying affected consumers through written notices, starting from March 15, 2024. They have also provided resources for credit monitoring and identity theft protection to support those impacted.

Steps for Affected Individuals

  1. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly review your account statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity. You are entitled to a free credit report annually from each of the major credit bureaus, which you can obtain through AnnualCreditReport.com.
  2. Credit Monitoring: Double Eagle has arranged for affected individuals to enroll in a free credit monitoring service through IDX. This service includes credit and CyberScan monitoring, a $1,000,000 insurance reimbursement policy, and identity theft recovery services. Enroll by June 15, 2024, by visiting IDX's enrollment page or by calling 1-888-641-3428.
  3. Place a Fraud Alert or Credit Freeze: Consider placing a fraud alert or a credit freeze on your credit reports. This can help prevent new credit accounts from being opened in your name without your permission. Contact any of the three major credit reporting bureaus to set this up:
    1. TransUnion
    2. Experian
    3. Equifax
  4. Report Suspicious Activity: If you notice any suspicious or unusual activity, immediately report this to your financial institution and law enforcement. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
