Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe you might have been affected by this data breach, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your identity and financial information:

  1. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly check your bank statements, credit card statements, and any other financial documents for any unauthorized transactions.
  2. Place a Fraud Alert: Contact one of the major credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion, or Equifax) to request a fraud alert on your credit report.
  3. Consider a Credit Freeze: A more secure option than a fraud alert, a credit freeze will prevent creditors from accessing your credit report entirely.
  4. Review Your Credit Reports: Obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus at AnnualCreditReport.com.
  5. Report Suspicious Activity: If you notice any suspicious activity, report it immediately to your financial institution and the Federal Trade Commission through IdentityTheft.gov.
