NCB Management is a debt management company that purchases debt from other organizations and tries to collect on the debts. The organization works with data from major companies, and that puts the data of hundreds of thousands of individuals into the hands of NCB Management. The company recently suffered from a data breach that put more than 500,000 people at risk of being hurt by fraud.
The NCB data breach happened because an attacker broke into the file network of the company. Once inside that file network, the attacker was able to access files that may have contained a lot of personal information on the network.
The NCB breach occurred between February 1st and February 4th, 2023. During those few days, the hacker was able to access countless files and capture bank and credit card information for hundreds of thousands of users. It wasn't until March 8th that NCB confirmed personal data was lost from the attack.
This data breach impacts Bank of America customers that had their data stored on NCB servers. These Bank of America customers had a debt with the company, and their personal data was exposed by the attack. If you get a notice about the breach, you know you were one of the individuals exposed.
The total NCB file count is still unknown, but we know that more than 500,000 individuals were hurt by the breach overall. This is a huge issue that could lead to countless cases of fraud and financial and credit damage.
