What Happened?

Shah Dixit & Associates P.C. experienced a significant data breach that was first identified on December 22, 2023. The breach involved unauthorized access to certain systems within the company. Immediate actions were taken to secure the systems and assess the extent of the intrusion. It was determined that the unauthorized access was both initiated and terminated on the same day.

The investigation revealed that various personal data files were accessible to the unauthorized third party. On February 26, 2024, it was confirmed that these files contained sensitive personal information, including names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, other government identification numbers, and financial account numbers. Although there is no evidence that this information was misused, the potential exposure prompted Shah Dixit & Associates P.C. to take precautionary measures to protect affected individuals.

  • Credit Freeze: Consider placing a credit freeze on your files, which makes it harder for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name. To do this, contact each of the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

  • Fraud Alerts: You can place a fraud alert on your credit reports which warns creditors that you may be an identity theft victim and they should verify that anyone seeking credit in your name really is you. Start the process by contacting one of the bureaus listed above.
