EQUIFAX BREACH INFORMATION

MasterCard and Visa have released the following association alerts in response to the Equifax data breach. These alerts encompass the 209,000 credit cards that were breached; however, they do not address all 143 million users who had birth dates, credit card numbers and Social Security numbers stolen. CRFCU is here to help you our cardholders with understanding and dealing with this extraordinary threat. The incident was limited to Equifax and was not in any way related to CO-OP Financial Services, financial institutions or any direct merchants. A relatively small number of card numbers were compromised, non-specific to credit unions.

What our cardholders can do:

  • Go to www.equifaxsecurity2017.com to check whether he or she is one of the 143 million people whose data may have been compromised
  • Set fraud alerts – all bureaus
  • Monitor credit activity (www.annualcreditreport.com, etc.)
  • Reset account passwords, PIN codes and other log-in credentials on financial accounts that may be vulnerable.
  • Establish multiple-authentication protocols for financial accounts and email, when possible
  • Establish credit monitoring service through Equifax or through other service providers_______________________
  • CRFCU to sponsor lunchtime networking event with the Rensselaer Chamber on Wednesday, August 23. To register, renscochamber.com.
