Digital Prospectors Corp is an IT and technical staffing agency in Boston. The company helps connect trained professionals with jobs that need their skills. The company manages information for many professionals looking for employment, and some of that information may have been compromised in a recent data breach.
The Digital Prospectors Corp breach occurred when a single employee laptop was accessed by an outside individual. The hacker got into personal files on the laptop and may have exposed dozens of individuals working with the organization.
The laptop was breached on September 26, 2022, and files were accessible for a short period of time. During that period, sensitive information could have been stolen, and it is possible many people were exposed due to this attack.
The Digital Prospectors data breach impacts approximately 67 individuals from New Hampshire working with the agency. Each of those individuals could have had their information accessed during the breach. If you get a letter from the organization, you should watch your credit history for suspicious activity because you may have been exposed.
The Digital Prospectors data breach affects hundreds of files, all contained on a single employee laptop. Only a small portion of those files had confidential information in them, and these are the files the security experts are worried about.
