First American Title Insurance Company Announces Data Breach
First American Title Insurance Company (First American), which is widely used to provide real estate title insurance to homebuyers, recently announced it experienced a data breach. According to statements on its website, www.firstam.com/incidentupdate, it has identified over 75,000 records, which are being reviewed to determine if non-public personal information may have been exposed. Of the records reviewed so far, First American has reported only a small percentage contain sensitive information and believes the vast majority of records exposed did not contain non-public personal information. Consumers who received a title insurance policy or escrow/closing services from First American on or after January 2, 2003, may obtain one year of complimentary credit monitoring services through Equifax by visiting the First American website. To determine if First American is the underwriter of your title insurance, refer to the title insurance policy you received at or after settlement.
