A message from Curtis R Knuth, Executive Vice President at NCS (National Credit-reporting System, Inc.). Credit Repository Data Breach Announced Yesterday
As you’ve likely read or heard, one of the three data repositories for credit reporting information had a massive data breach earlier this year affecting over 140 million of the US population.  Social Security Numbers, names, birth dates and driver’s license numbers are some of the data elements stolen.  The credit repositories go to extraordinary lengths to protect our data, but obviously, there was a significant vulnerability exploited in this crime.
You may be asking yourself or your clients may be asking you, “What should I be doing to protect my family and myself from the effects of this breach?”  Here are a few suggestions developed by NCS and our data security advisement firm.
