What Happened?

On February 21, 2022, Gas South discovered suspicious activity on certain Gas South computer systems. Upon identifying unusual activity on certain systems, Gas South disconnected these systems from the network and commenced an investigation.

Because the investigation determined that there was unauthorized access to certain data, Gas South initiated a review of its systems to determine the type of information and to whom it related. Following its initial review, Gas South worked diligently to identify and populate address information for any potentially affected individuals. In an abundance of caution, we are notifying you about the event before the investigation is complete so that you may take steps to protect your information.
