San Francisco Pension Data Breach May Have Exposed Bank Info

(TNS) — The San Francisco Employees’ Retirement System, the city workers’ pension fund, reported a data breach affecting around 74,000 members.

The pension system’s vendor, 10up Inc., said an outside party accessed a test data server with members’ information on Feb. 24. The server was closed and 10up Inc. said there was no evidence information was removed, but could not confirm whether the data was viewed or copied.

The data, which was last updated in Aug. 29, 2018, may have included first names, home addresses, dates of birth, designated beneficiary information, and SFERS website user names and passwords, the fund revealed Tuesday. Retired pension members may have had 1099-R tax form information and bank routing numbers exposed.
