Nissan North America Data Breach Investigation Details

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Nissan North America data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 53,038 individuals and their personal information.

On or about November 7, 2023, Nissan North America learned that it had experienced a data breach by which unauthorized access to its data was obtained. The business claims that it at first thought only business data was accessed, but later learned that employee records had been compromised as well.  The impacted information includes:

  • Name,
  • Personally Identifiable Information
  • Social Security number

Potential Impact of the Nissan North America Data Breach

Nissan North America informed individuals of this breach through a mailed notice, delivered on or about May 15, 2024. All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous if adversely used against affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft noticed identity theft attempts ranging from:

  • fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards;
  • unauthorized credit card applications;
  • medical services or government services ordered in their name;
  • their information being posted on the dark web;
  • a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received;

Though credit monitoring is offered, any amount less than a lifetime of protection is simply inadequate. Data breaches present a lifetime of risk. Additionally, fraud and identity theft attempts or attacks can happen for many years following a data breach. Furthermore, individuals impacted by data breaches should remain vigilant, such as by closely monitoring their accounts, changing passwords, and acting quickly to prevent or minimize fraud once it has occurred.
