Minami Tamaki is investigating the recently announced Capital One data breach that resulted in unauthorized access to the private information of approximately 100 million credit card applicants and customers in the United States.
In a press release, Capital One stated that 140,000 Social Security numbers and 80,000 linked bank account numbers of credit card customers were compromised.
In addition, millions of applicants’ names, addresses, zip codes, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, dates of birth, self-reported income, and credit histories were reportedly accessed.
The data breach may have affected individuals who applied for a Capital One credit card product from 2005 to 2019. The hack appears to be one of the largest data breaches ever to hit a financial services company.
The FBI has reportedly arrested one individual in connection with the data breach. Capital One stated that on July 19, 2019, it determined that there was unauthorized access by an outside individual on March 22 and March 23, 2019.
