Viridi Parente Data Breach Exposes Personally Sensitive Info

On December 13, 2023, Viridi Parente detected unusual activity within their network systems. This was promptly followed by the engagement of a specialized third-party cybersecurity firm to assist in securing the environment and to conduct a comprehensive forensic investigation. The investigation revealed that certain files had been accessed by an unauthorized actor, leading to a potential compromise of sensitive personal information. By May 21, 2024, Viridi Parente had identified the individuals potentially affected by this breach and finalized the list for notification.

The types of personal information that may have been accessed include:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Financial account information
  • Driver’s license number
  • Passport number/government identification
  • Tax identification number
  • Email address
  • Social Security Number

In response to the data breach, Viridi Parente took immediate action to secure their systems and mitigate any potential damage. They implemented new technical safeguards, enhanced monitoring detection, and changed administrative credentials. Additionally, the company is offering affected individuals complimentary credit monitoring and identity theft restoration services through Cyberscout, a TransUnion company specializing in fraud assistance.

If your information was compromised in this breach, it is crucial to stay vigilant. Review your account statements and monitor your credit reports for any suspicious activity. Consider contacting your financial institution and placing fraud alerts with the major credit bureaus: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. Additionally, activating the provided credit monitoring services can help safeguard your identity.
