TRC Talent Solutions Data Breach Affects Over 158,000

What Happened?

On or about April 12, 2024, TRC Talent Solutions detected suspicious activity within their computer systems, which included the encryption of certain files. This security incident was identified as a breach when unauthorized access was confirmed between March 25, 2024, and April 12, 2024. An unknown actor managed to infiltrate the systems and potentially accessed or acquired sensitive data. The company responded swiftly by securing their systems and initiating a thorough investigation with the help of federal law enforcement to understand the scope and impact of the breach.

Information Exposed

During the breach, the following types of consumer information were potentially compromised:

  • Name of individual
  • Address
  • Social Security Number

Response from TRC Talent Solutions

Upon discovering the breach, TRC Talent Solutions took immediate action to mitigate the situation by securing their IT environment and launching a comprehensive investigation to ascertain the full extent of the breach. They have notified federal law enforcement and are cooperating fully with the ongoing investigation. In response to the incident, TRC is enhancing their security measures and providing additional training to their employees to prevent future breaches. Impacted individuals are being offered 12 months of free credit monitoring services through CyEx, a step aimed at safeguarding their identities and financial information from potential misuse.

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 your identity and financial integrity:

  1. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly review your financial statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity. If you spot something suspicious, report it immediately to your financial institution.
  2. Credit Monitoring: Enroll in the free credit monitoring service offered by TRC Talent Solutions. This service can alert you to changes in your credit file that could indicate fraud.
  3. Place a Fraud Alert: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports. This makes it harder for identity thieves to open accounts in your name. Contact any of the three major credit bureaus to place an alert.
  4. Security Freeze: A more severe option is to place a security freeze on your credit reports, which prevents creditors from accessing your credit report entirely. This can prevent new accounts from being opened in your name.
  5. Stay Informed: Keep abreast of any updates from TRC Talent Solutions regarding the breach and follow their recommendations.
