Welcome to the informational website for the Exude Benefits Group Security Incident.
Exude Benefits Group (“Exude”) has become aware of a data security incident that may have resulted in the disclosure of individuals’ personal information, including names and Social Security numbers. Although at this time we have no evidence of any attempted or actual misuse of anyone’s information as a result of this incident we have taken steps to protect all potentially impacted individuals and to provide resources to assist them.
Exude is an employee benefits firm specializing in a variety of employee benefits and services for a number of employers. We learned that the email account of one of our employees had been compromised, immediately launched an investigation that prevented further unauthorized access to the email account, and also retained a leading cybersecurity investigative firm to conduct a detailed forensic investigation to determine what information may have been accessed by the unauthorized individual.
As a result of that investigation and a manual review to identify any personal information contained within the email account, on September 19, 2018, we discovered that some individual’s personal information, including names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and for some, limited health information – may have been vulnerable. No personal financial information was exposed.
