A company responsible for keeping your personal information safe has been hacked. Equifax announced the cybersecurity breach that affects 143 million people. Are you one of them?

Hackers gathered names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers from mid-May through July 2017. Credit card numbers for nearly 209,000 people were also taken.

“This is clearly a disappointing event for our company, and one that strikes at the heart of who we are and what we do. I apologize to consumers and our business customers for the concern and frustration this causes,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard F. Smith. “We pride ourselves on being a leader in managing and protecting data, and we are conducting a thorough review of our overall security operations. We also are focused on consumer protection and have developed a comprehensive portfolio of services to support all U.S. consumers, regardless of whether they were impacted by this incident.”

To find out if you’ve been affected, call 866-447-7559.  You can get more information at equifaxsecurity2017.com.

Equifax will mail notices to anyone whose credit card numbers or documents with personal information were impacted. They are also offering free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection for one year.

CEO Smith said, “I’ve told our entire team that our goal can’t be simply to fix the problem and move on. Confronting cybersecurity risks is a daily fight. While we’ve made significant investments in data security, we recognize we must do more. And we will.”
