Type of breach: 

An HCFCU member filed a complaint in 2011 after suspecting that their information had been improperly used for an HCFCU board nomination process. It became apparent that several employees had added names to nomination petitions, then went to credit union members to have them sign the petitions. Fewer than 500 of the 40,000 HCFCU members had their account information and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers accessed. The employees involved were disciplined and/or had their employment terminated. HCFCU employees are now required to go through a new training process to reinforce policies that prohibit accessing members' information.
