I’ve heard from multiple sources that South Carolinians are about to deal with another security breach. It isn't necessarily a "hack," but personal information has been compromised in some way.
A lot of the details are being tightly guarded, but will reportedly be explained on Thursday. I can’t confirm the entity yet, but I can say it is not the Department of Revenue.
Here's what I know so far:
- A press conference is being planned for Thursday morning to officially announce what happened.
- The breach involves personal information in some capacity, but the sources wouldn't confirm what type of information was compromised or how many people will be effected.
- Much like a year ago, Experian is being asked to assist in the process.
