The following notice includes information about the event, steps taken since discovering the event, and resources available to help individuals protect against potential misuse of their information, should they feel it is appropriate to do so.
What Happened? On February 27, 2021, Campbell became aware of unusual activity on its network. Campbell conducted an investigation and determined that the network was impacted by ransomware, which prevented access to certain files on the system. In response, Campbell began working with third-party forensic investigators to investigate the full nature and scope of the event and to determine what information may have been impacted and to whom the information relates. Campbell also alerted the FBI of the incident. Campbell is providing notice because the investigation thus far determined that certain information relating to individuals was accessed by the unauthorized actor.
What Information Was Involved? We cannot confirm if the unauthorized actor accessed or viewed any specific information relating to individuals. However, we determined that the information present in the system included certain individuals' names, dates of birth, driver's license numbers / state identification numbers, financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, payment card information, medical information, health insurance information, biometric data, and/or online account credentials (i.e. usernames and passwords). Please note that the information varies by individual and for many individuals, a limited number of data types were determined to be accessible.
