Understanding the Tocci Building Corporation Data Breach

If you've had past dealings with Tocci Building Corporation, a construction management firm based in New England, it's important to be aware of a recent data breach that may affect your personal information. On February 29, 2024, Tocci discovered unauthorized access to their systems which may have compromised sensitive data from the period 2010-2015.

What Happened

The breach was detected by Tocci's cybersecurity team, and immediate action was taken to contain the incident. An external cybersecurity firm was engaged to ascertain the scope and impact, revealing that personal information used for compensation and benefits might have been accessed.

What Information Was Involved

The data potentially exposed includes names, addresses, personal email addresses, telephone numbers, and Social Security numbers. This type of information can be used for identity theft and fraud, so it's crucial to take protective measures if you believe you might be affected.

What Tocci Is Doing

Tocci has reported the breach to law enforcement and is cooperating with authorities. They have also initiated a comprehensive review of their security systems to prevent future incidents. To support those impacted, Tocci is offering to cover the cost of an 18-month credit monitoring service, which includes features like daily credit monitoring, dark web surveillance, insurance reimbursement, and identity theft recovery services.
