Equifax, which is one of the three major credit bureaus, announced on September 7, 2017, that it had experienced a data breach from May 2017 through July 2017, potentially impacting millions of consumers. The hackers were successful in accessing people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some instances driver’s license numbers and credit card numbers. While Citizens National Bank was not involved with the Equifax breach, we want to make sure that our customers are aware of the situation so that you can take the necessary steps if your personal information has been compromised.
