New rules, you say?
Vystar Credit Union was hit by “hackers”, who obtained personal info on 10% or so of their 334,000 customers. The information included “names, addresses, social security numbers, birth dates, mothers’ maiden names and e-mail addresses”, according to Jacksonville.com.
Credit union CEO Terry West took a rather old school approach:
West said the company noticed the invaded information “a few weeks ago,” before turning to Jacksonville-based IT consulting firm Idea Integration, who confirmed the breach.
West insisted that the stolen information consisted of “things you can get from a variety of sources anyway.”
Adam, did you forget to send Terry a copy of the New Rules memo? He obviously isn’t familiar with it.
Florida’s breach law took effect well before this event. That law requires notice to be sent “without unreasonable delay”.
Hat tip to the Identity Theft Resource Center, who maintain a pretty decent breach list. Too bad they overwrote the 2005 version with a file of the same name.
