What Happened at First Financial Security?
On January 19, 2024, First Financial Security (FFS) filed a notice of data breach with the Attorney General of California, explaining that the company was targeted in a recent ransomware attack. The incident may have resulted in an unauthorized party being able to access consumers’ names, Social Security numbers, and other personal information.
In October 2023, FFS first learned about the ransomware attack, and later concluded that the hackers were able to access portions of its IT network. First Financial Security took time to review the compromised files to determine what information was leaked, and on January 19, 2024, began sending out data breach notification letters to anyone who was affected.
