A security breach may have caused employees' names, Social Security numbers, addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, bank account numbers, credit card information, signatures and other personal information to be publicly exposed. The breach occurred late last year when a Pfizer employee removed copies of confidential information from a Pfizer computer system without the company's knowledge or approval. Pfizer didn't become aware of the breach until July 10.
