Recent T-Mobile Customer Data Breach
We can confirm that no personal employee data is provided to T-Mobile by NSU for any users who use an NSU provided phone.
For any of you who are T-Mobile personal account customers (not related to your NSU provided phone), your personal data may have been compromised.T-Mobile should be contacting you with their official recommendations soon if your account was one of those breached. In the meantime, we recommend the following:
- First, if you still have an active personal account with T-Mobile, change your T-Mobile account password and security PIN immediately.
- Second, if the password you used for your personal T-Mobile account is a password that you also use elsewhere on other online accounts, change those passwords, as well.
- Third, enable two-factor or multi-factor authentication on every online account you can.
This incident illustrates the elevated risks that we all face as we navigate the technology solutions we all use day-to-day. By practicing good cybersecurity hygiene, we can each help to keep ourselves safer, as well as reduce the impact of these kinds of incidents in future.
