What Happened at J.D. Gilmour?
On June 29, 2023, J.D. Gilmour became aware of a potential unauthorized access to its e-mail network and hired a cybersecurity forensic team to investigate. By August 2023, the forensic investigation determined that an unknown party had gained unauthorized access to a JD Gilmour employee e-mail user account. A couple months later, in October, the company completed its investigation of the data maintained within the compromised e-mail user account and determined that personal information was indeed compromised in the attack.
The specific data leaked may vary from person to person and the company should offer more details in their data breach notification letters to individuals. J.D. Gilmour has begun sending out notices to those impacted as well as attorney generals.
J.D. Gilmour is an independent insurance agency operating out of Glendale, California. They offer clients insurance products, such as employee & executive benefit plans, as well as HR support and technology support services.
