If you're among those affected by the Bristol Bay Construction Holdings data breach, it's important to understand that you have rights and may be entitled to compensation. Lawyers are ready to help guide you through the process of protecting your identity and seeking any damages for the harm you've experienced.

What Happened?

On January 9, 2024, Bristol Bay Construction Holdings discovered a significant data breach. As a leading construction entity with subsidiaries like Aerostar, CCI, CSI, Herman, and SES brands, Bristol Bay Construction Holdings has a reputation for quality services across various sectors, including general construction and environmental services. Despite their robust portfolio, the company's cybersecurity measures were compromised, leading to the exposure of sensitive consumer information.

The breach was disclosed to the Attorney General's office in Massachusetts, and the details were published on the Maine Attorney General's website and the Massachusetts Attorney General's website. In Maine alone, 27 individuals were affected. By April 9, 2024, Bristol Bay Construction Holdings began notifying consumers of the incident through written communication.

Your Rights and Next Steps

If you suspect that your information was compromised in this breach, taking immediate action is crucial. Here are detailed steps you should follow:

  1. Review Your Accounts: Keep an eye on your bank statements and credit reports for any unauthorized transactions. You're entitled to a free credit report every 12 months from each of the three nationwide credit reporting companies. Visit or call 1-877-322-8228 to request yours.

  2. Contact Credit Bureaus: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports by contacting any one of the three nationwide credit bureaus—Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion. This alert can make it harder for identity thieves to open accounts in your name.

  3. Security Freeze: You may also place a security freeze on your credit files, which prevents new accounts from being opened without your express permission. This can be done for free by contacting the credit bureaus directly.

  4. Report Identity Theft: If you have reason to believe your personal information has been misused, contact the Federal Trade Commission at or by calling 1-877-IDTHEFT (438-4338). Additionally, file a police report and contact your state's Attorney General's office.

  5. Stay Informed: Keep the provided PIN or password from the credit bureaus in a safe place, as you will need it to lift or remove the freeze.
