As you have probably heard, consumer credit reporting bureau Equifax recently reported a large-scale breach of consumer data. The hackers accessed sensitive information, such as: people’s names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, driver’s licenses numbers and credit card numbers.
This breach did not impact CommunityBank of Texas systems.
