Understanding the LL Funds, LLC Data Breach

LL Funds, LLC, an investment management firm based in Philadelphia, PA, recently experienced a data security incident that may have compromised sensitive consumer information. The company, which specializes in opportunistic investments in asset-backed securities and related companies, manages approximately $2.3 billion for its clients.

On January 4, 2024, LL Funds detected unusual activity within its digital environment. The company responded swiftly by securing its network and initiating a thorough investigation with the help of independent cybersecurity experts. This investigation revealed that an unauthorized actor had gained access to certain files and data stored within LL Funds' systems.

By February 29, 2024, LL Funds confirmed that personal information, including names, Social Security numbers, and driver's license numbers, may have been affected by the breach. It is important to note that, as of now, there is no evidence to suggest that this information has been misused.

In response to the incident, LL Funds has taken significant steps to enhance its security protocols to prevent similar breaches in the future. The firm is also providing affected individuals with complimentary identity protection services, including Single Bureau Credit Monitoring, Credit Report, and Credit Score services for 24 months through Cyberscout, a TransUnion company.
