Data Breach AlertJune 20, 2022 – Recently, Ameriprise Financial, Inc. reported official notice of a data breach to various government entities. Based on initial reports, the Ameriprise breach resulted in the names, Social Security numbers and account numbers of affected parties being made available to one or more unauthorized parties. On June 14, 2022, Ameriprise Financial began sending out data breach notification letters to individuals whose information was leaked as a result of the recent data security incident.

What We Know So Far About the Ameriprise Financial Breach

News of the Ameriprise data breach is still limited, as the company only very recently reported the incident. However, based on available information, Ameriprise self-reported the breach, which leaked customer names, Social Security numbers as well as their account numbers. In response, Ameriprise is offering free credit monitoring to affected individuals.

It is not entirely clear what led to the Ameriprise breach; however, in recent history, the company has experienced several other data breaches, which may be related to this incident. For example, on March 16, 2022, an Ameriprise representative inadvertently sent an email containing sensitive customer data to the wrong recipient. Additionally, on May 3, 2021, the company sent out faxed information to a third-party email account instead of to an Ameriprise email account. This most recent incident may be related to either of these breaches, or it could be an entirely separate incident.

On June 14, 2022, Ameriprise Financial sent out data breach letters to all individuals whose information was compromised as a result of the recent data security incident. More information is expected in the near future.
