Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe your information may have been compromised in this breach, it is crucial to act promptly to protect yourself from potential identity theft:

  1. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly review your bank, credit card, and other financial statements for any unauthorized activity.
  2. Credit Reports: Obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies once a year at AnnualCreditReport.com.
  3. Fraud Alerts: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports, which warns creditors to take extra steps to verify your identity before opening new credit accounts in your name.
  4. Credit Freeze: A more severe option is to place a credit freeze on your reports, which prevents creditors from accessing your credit report entirely without your permission.
  5. IRS IP PIN: Apply for an IRS Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN) that helps prevent misuse of your Social Security number on fraudulent federal income tax returns.
  6. Stay Informed: Stay updated on the latest information regarding this breach and learn more about protecting yourself from identity theft.
