Insurance Commissioner Speaks About Nationwide Insurance Security Breach

November 20, 2012
A lock and key lies on a computer keyboard.

Following an online security breach at the Nationwide Insurance Company, Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens yesterday reassured more than 28,000 Nationwide members and policy applicants across the state that the insurer would be keeping them informed and working to protect them all from identity theft. 

Last Friday, Nationwide sent letters to all affected consumers, and the company will answer member and applicant questions at the toll-free number 1-800-760-1125.

To guard all affected consumers against identity theft, the insurer is also offering free credit monitoring and protection services through Equifax during the coming year.

If you've any more questions about the breach, contact the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner at 1-800-656-2298.
