Handling the Fallout of the Purfoods Data Breach

If you were affected by the PurFoods data breach, you should receive a notification letter. This will detail which types of information were stolen, and you can use that to better protect yourself.

The most serious type of stolen data is your Social Security number, as malicious actors can use it to take out lines of credit in your name and hurt you financially. One key way to prevent this type of identity theft is by issuing a credit freeze with the major credit bureaus. Financial account information is a serious danger, but you can mitigate it by changing the credentials on your cards and financial accounts.
