Equifax Consumer Breach DOES NOT Affect First Nonprofit Group Clients
As many saw on the news recently, Equifax, a top credit reporting agency, reported a massive data breach affecting over 143 million credit consumers. This breach has not affected our clients whose unemployment claims administration is provided by Equifax Workforce Solutions.
On September 07, 2017, Equifax reported massive data breach that affected over 143 million “credit” consumers. Equifax Workforce Solutions’ confidential data and IT platform was NOT penetrated. That means all information exchanged with Equifax Workforce Solutions by First Nonprofit Group clients is protected and all current systems in place are secure. To be clear, Equifax consumer credit division data and systems are completely separate from the Equifax Workforce Solutions.
A representative for Equifax Workforce Solutions has provided the following information: “Equifax has found no evidence that the cybersecurity incident announced on September 7, 2017, impacted Workforce Solutions databases. The employee data you provide to Workforce Solutions for Unemployment Claims Administration, I-9, Tax Form Management, ACA, and The Work Number payroll databases were not affected by this incident.”
Security of data is the essence of First Nonprofit Group’s vital service to its clients and our daily contact with Equifax Workforce Solutions and all third-party vendors will continue to include our priority for data security. “Equifax is conducting a complete review of their security operations to make sure this will never happen again.”
First Nonprofit Group remains vigilant on behalf of all clients and will continue to conduct on-going review of security operations.
