Security Breach at Nationwide Compromises Oklahoma Customer Info

By | December 3, 2012

Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak said a security breach at an Ohio-based insurer has compromised the personal information of 534 Oklahomans.

Doak said the computer network used by Nationwide Insurance Co. of Columbus, Ohio, and Allied Insurance was attacked on Oct. 3. The FBI is investigating.

An initial analysis indicated the compromised information includes names and some combination of customers’ Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, birthdates and possibly their marital statuses, genders and occupations.

Nationwide is notifying customers whose personal information may have been compromised.

Doak said there is no evidence any personal information has been misused. But Nationwide is arranging free credit report monitoring and identity theft protection for affected customers for one year.
