Doxim Data Breach Exposed These Types of Sensitive Personal Info

On December 25, 2023, and December 30, 2023, Doxim, Inc., a prominent player in the customer communications management and engagement technology sector, experienced a significant data breach. The breach involved unauthorized access to files containing sensitive personal information of individuals associated with various financial services, utilities, and healthcare institutions.

Doxim detected suspicious activity within the portion of its computer network supporting its credit union services. The company promptly took these systems offline, notified law enforcement, and engaged cybersecurity experts to investigate the situation.

Following an in-depth review, it was discovered that files had been removed from Doxim’s network. These files included personal information such as names, mailing addresses, account numbers, and Social Security numbers. The breach is severe, given the nature of the data exposed and the potential implications for identity theft and financial fraud.

Steps for Affected Individuals

If you believe you have been affected by this data breach, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your identity and personal information. Here are some recommended steps:

  1. Review Your Credit Reports: Regularly monitor your credit reports for any suspicious activity. You are entitled to one free copy of your credit report every 12 months from each of the three major credit reporting companies. Visit Annual Credit Report to obtain your reports.
  2. Place Fraud Alerts: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports. This will notify creditors to take extra steps to verify your identity before opening new accounts. You can place a fraud alert by contacting one of the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion.
  3. Place Security Freezes: A security freeze prevents new creditors from accessing your credit report entirely, making it more challenging for identity thieves to open accounts in your name. Contact each of the three credit bureaus to place a freeze.
  4. Monitor Account Statements: Carefully review your financial account statements for any unauthorized transactions and report any suspicious activity to your financial institution immediately.
  5. Obtain an Identity Protection PIN from the IRS: This six-digit PIN helps prevent someone else from filing a tax return using your Social Security Number. For more information, visit the IRS website on Identity Protection PIN.
