About 2,500 Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) police officers and 17,500 LAPD job seekers are reportedly stolen personal information in a data breach. Theguardian quoted several officials on Monday as saying that the stolen information included name, e-mail address, date of birth, the last four digits of their social security numbers, and the email addresses and passwords.
In this regard, LAPD recommends that affected police officers monitor their credit reports and bank accounts. “The Los Angeles Police Department is working with our city partners to better understand the extent and impact of the data breach,” LAPD said in a statement. “We are also taking steps to ensure the Department’s data is protected from any further intrusions.”
