Equifax Cybersecurity Incident and StarPoint Screening

Equifax Security Alert

As many of you know Equifax announced a cyber-security incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers and some UK and Canadian residents. We at StarPoint Screening are aware of the situation and want to make our customers aware that we do not have a partnership with Equifax or use their services for consumer information.

From Mid-May through July of 2017 criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files.  The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and in some instances driver’s license numbers.

See if your personal information is potentially impacted.

Equifax has provided a link where you can enter your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number and based on that information, you will receive a message indicating whether your personal information may have been impacted.  If your information was impacted you will have the option to enroll in TrustedID Premier.  The enrollment period ends on Tuesday, November 21, 2017.
