SC data breach: things to know to protect your ID
Placeholder Image
As a result of the information security breach at the South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR) that was detected on October 10, 2012, the Social Security numbers and business tax identification numbers of approximately 3.6 million South Carolinians have been compromised. I have been appointed to the SCDOR Data Breach Investigative Committee by Speaker Harrell to examine why the breach occurred and to find a way forward that will keep our citizens’ personal information secure. Over the course of the last few weeks, we have learned that there are discrepancies among state agencies in information security policy.
