Data Breach Reported on March 22, 2024

On March 22, 2024, a data breach was reported involving Haven Technologies, affecting the personal information of participants in a non-qualified deferred compensation plan managed by Newport Group, Inc., a third-party recordkeeper. This incident has raised concerns about the security of personal data and the potential risks of identity theft.

Haven Technologies's Response

In response to the data breach, Haven Technologies, through Newport Group, Inc., has taken proactive steps to mitigate the impact on affected individuals.

What You Should Do if Affected

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

  1. Enroll in IdentityWorks: You can sign up for the complimentary service offered by visiting the Experian IdentityWorks website and using the provided activation code. Ensure you enroll by June 30, 2024.
  2. Monitor Your Accounts: Keep an eye on your account statements and credit reports. If you notice any unauthorized activity, promptly report it to the financial institution or company involved.
  3. Consider a Credit Freeze: You might want to place a credit freeze on your files, which makes it harder for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name. More information about how to do this can be found through the Federal Trade Commission.
