Nissan Canada Finance Alerts 1.13 Million Customers of Data Breach

Attackers gain access to personal information of Nissan Canada Finance and Infiniti Financial Services Canada customers.

Nissan Canada Finance (NCF) is notifying 1.13 million customers that their personal information may be at risk following a data breach of its operations.

The organization, which is still determining the number of people affected by the breach, is contacting all current and former customers who financed their vehicles through NCF or Infiniti Financial Services Canada, NCF said in a statement.

Customers' names, addresses, vehicle make, model, and identification numbers, credit scores, loan amounts, and monthly payment schedules may have been accessed in the breach, NCF stated. The company said no payment card information was accessed and the breach appears to only affect its Canadian customers.

NCF is offering customers 12 months of complimentary credit monitoring services through TransUnion. It is also working with data security experts and law enforcement to further investigate the breach.

This is a positive notion, however aside from Nissan proprietary information specific to the individual this information could not be used to create other lines of credit in and of themselves. The rest of the datasets are publicly accessible.
