Identity theft is a multi-billion-dollar problem. Although many companies have responded to this threat appropriately, some continue to risk theft of the sensitive personal information entrusted to them by consumers and employees. Unfortunately, it appears ALBERTSONS failed to protect the sensitive information of thousands of employees and consumers.
HOW DID THE BREACH OCCUR?
According to various news sources, on or about December 23, 2022, Albertsons discovered that it had experienced a data breach in which sensitive, personally identifiable information may have been accessed and acquired. Through its investigation, Albertsons determined that an unauthorized party was able to access and remove copies of data from some of the company’s servers between December 22, 2022 and December 24, 2022. Albertsons later determined that the data accessible to the unauthorized party included confidential employee and customer information. The type of information exposed includes but is not limited to name, social security number, human resources records, email, and mailing address.
Cybercriminals use personal information with the primary incentive of using that private data to commit identity theft and financial fraud. Identity theft wreaks havoc on consumers’ finances, credit history, and reputation and can take time, money, and patience to resolve. Identity thieves use stolen personal information for a variety of crimes, including credit card fraud, phone or utility fraud, banking or finance fraud, government fraud, and medical identity theft. Moreover, a person whose personal information has been compromised may not see the full extent of identity theft or fraud for years.
Upon discovering that sensitive consumer data was made available to an unauthorized party, Albertsons began to review the affected files to determine what information was compromised and which consumers were impacted. The company completed this process on March 24, 2023.
On April 21, 2023, Albertsons sent out data breach letters to all individuals whose information was compromised as a result of the recent data security incident.
