Nationwide Insurance Breach

November 23, 2012

Nearly 12,500 South Carolinians are victims of yet another on-line security break.  The SC Department of Insurance has been notified by Nationwide Insurance  that a portion of Nationwide’s computer network was criminally intruded upon by an unidentified perpetrator. Upon discovering the attack, Nationwide  took immediate actions to contain the intrusion.   Nationwide says 12,490 South Carolina members and/or policy holders may have had their personal and private information compromised.  It is believed that social security numbers, driver’s license numbers and possibly dates of birth may have been retrieved.

Nationwide promptly contacted the appropriate law enforcement  authorities and they are actively investigating the incident.  Nationwide has a toll free number to answer questions and concerns.  That number is 800-760-1125.  The South Carolina department of insurance’s database and information was NOT part of the security breach.
