We are pleased to announce that our company will offer 90 days of free online privacy protection for anyone impacted by the recent accidental disclosure of private information by the California Department of Justice (DOJ).
This breach revealed the personal information of individuals who were granted or denied a concealed and carry weapons (CCW) permit between 2011-2021. The information exposed included names, addresses, dates of birth, gender, race, driver’s license numbers, and criminal histories.
How We Can Help
Using the proprietary software of its IronWall360 service, 360Civic scans the internet for any sites where someone’s home address, phone number, and other private data are accessible. The company then contacts that site to make sure that content is removed.
“This is a dangerous situation, certainly for judges and families of police officers but also for anyone who does not want their home address easily accessible online,” said 360Civic CEO Ron Zayas. “If you believe you have been impacted by this leak, or have already received notification from the DOJ that your privacy has been compromised, we are ready to help at no cost.”
If You Were Affected by the Data Breach
Anyone concerned about this data breach can contact 360Civic at any time to have his or her private data located and removed online for free for 90 days. If you are affiliated with a court and wish to request this service for all of the judges in your county/jurisdiction, please use this link to request a quote.
360Civic also advises anyone impacted by this leak to monitor their credit scores, place a fraud alert on their credit reports, and be alert to the possibility of becoming a victim of identity theft.
