• Company hired to help SC, Target after data breaches hacked

    Updated:

    SOUTH CAROLINA - Millions of South Carolina residents were put at risk when the Department of Revenue was hacked two years ago. The company hired to help the state has also been hacked.

    Experian says the hack of a subsidiary of the company is an ongoing investigation, and they are unsure if information from the state of South Carolina was taken.

    The state hired Experian to monitor taxpayers’ credit reports after almost 4 million South Carolinians’ Social Security numbers were breached in 2012. This service cost the state $12 million.

    Experian is also the company Target hired after their massive data breach last year.

    Target is offering one year of free credit monitoring through Experian to all Target guests who shopped in U.S. stores. Customers need to register before April 23.
