All sgb members,
Here is yet another example why having banks as a sector may
be asking for more trouble.
It's also very interesting and IMHO bad leadership that Mr. Hallock
declined to reveal how many customers were affected by the incident.
I wonder if he really knows how many and if he himself has began
contacting his customers and offering to do whatever is needed or
desired by his known effected customers...
Columbia Bank Online Customers Notified of Breach
(May 21, 2007)
Fair Lawn, NJ-based Columbia Bank has acknowledged that cyber intruders
"gained access to [online] customers' names and SSNs." The breach did
not affect account numbers or passwords. Columbia Bank CEO Raymond G.
Hallock declined to reveal how many customers were affected by the
incident. Customers received letters dated May 18 informing them of the
situation and offering one year of free credit monitoring. The FBI and
the New Jersey State Police are investigating.
