Credit Control Corporation is a debt specialist that offers collection services, cash flow help, budget planning, cash acceleration, and other services to its corporate customers. The company employs approximately 25 people and has an annual revenue of around $7 million. It's based in Newport News, Virginia, and recently suffered from a major data breach.
The CCC data breach occurred because one hacker broke into the network and began acquiring confidential customer information. The data taken was for a large number of people, even if the actual data acquired for each individual was limited.
The CCC data breach first started on March 2, 2023, and lasted until March 7, 2023, when it was stopped. An investigation started at that point, and it wasn't until May 3 that the full scope of the data lost was determined by the investigators.
The CCC data breach impacted the customers of all the corporate clients that worked with Credit Control Corporation. If you receive a notice from CCC about the breach, you should know that you've been put at risk by the attack, and you could be hit by a fraud-based attack if you don't monitor your credit closely.
There isn't an official count of the CCC files impacted by this breach. We only know that a large number of individuals were affected during this breach and that it could cause serious credit issues for these people in the future.
