Experian Data Breach
September 12, 2017
As recently reported, Equifax (one of the three main credit reporting agencies) experienced a cyber security attack. The Federal Trade Commission has provided a summary of the breach, contact information, and suggestions for next steps at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2017/09/equifax-data-breach-what-do
While the breach did not occur at First Security, our goal is to assist customers by sharing important information as it becomes available. As always, we encourage you to monitor accounts regularly and alert us immediately if you suspect unauthorized use of personal information.
Looking at your account activity frequently--and forever--is a first line of defense, even if you elect to join an identity protection service.
