EPISD Gets Hacked – Could Mean Identity Theft For Parents And Employees

If you have a child in the El Paso Independant School District or are an employee, listen up.  Their internal network was hacked into, putting 63 thousand students and 9 thousand employees names, addresses, and Social Security Numbers at risk of being stolen. 

Great, now what, you ask….

First, get all your financial information together – numbers of your bank accounts, credit cards, etc.  Then, call all of your financial institutions and let them know that your identity is in danger because of the hacking.  They will help you figure out if anything has happened already and what to do about it.  They’ll also be able to put a flag on your account for any odd activity.

Next, you’ll need to call Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, to let them know what is going on.  They will need to have not only your SSN, but your child’s as well, because identity thieves like to use kid’s SSN’s because they are “clean”.

The process is not quick, but if you don’t want the headaches of dealing with your identity being stolen, you’ll need to go through it.  There is also more information on preventing identity theft on this website.  And of course, keep an eye on the EPISD website for more information on the hacking incident.
