IN: State unemployment accounts breached


According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, some 1000 Hoosiers’ accounts were compromised.

Marc Lotter with Workforce Development says, “The company that is contracted to handle the ATM portion of those cards, there was a security breach of some sort early last year.”

The state did send out letters at that time and 200 immediately changed cards. They are now looking to see if what happened to Rick and Tom is still part of that breach.

N.B. I think that this may be the first we are learning about any incident involving Indiana Department of Workforce Development last year.

    I agree that this is the first report I can locate about this breach. Just one more example of how many breaches fly below radar.
