Data Privacy Event Affects UFCW Local 655 Food Employers Joint Pension Plan

UFCW Local 655 Food Employers Joint Pension Plan is providing notice of a recent data event that may have affected the security of personal information relating to current and former UFCW Local 655 Food Employers Joint Pension Plan participants.

On or around July 21, 2016, UFCW was the victim of a ransomware attack.  UFCW immediately began an investigation and retained third-party forensic experts to assist in its investigation.  After an extensive investigation, UFCW found no evidence that any sensitive information was accessed or acquired; however, UFCW determined that an unauthorized user gained access to its server on July 14, 2016, one week before the ransomware attack.  While there is no evidence that any sensitive information was accessed or acquired, UFCW is unable to definitively rule out this possibility, and is providing notice out of an abundance of caution.  The information potentially affected by this incident includes individuals’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, as well as bank account information for a subset of individuals.
