Equifax Data Breach

Jefferson Security Bank takes the security of our customer information very seriously, so we wanted to make you aware of a recent data breach. Equifax, one of the three national consumer credit reporting agencies, announced a major data breach that affects approximately 143 million Americans. This is what we know according to Equifax: the data breach occurred between May – July 2017 and the information stolen includes consumers' personally identifiable information, including names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses and, in some cases, driver's license numbers. Approximately 209,000 credit card numbers and dispute documents with personally identifiable information for approximately 182,000 consumers were also stolen. There is no evidence of unauthorized access to consumers' credit reporting databases.
