Information About the Woodward Communications Breach

According to a complaint with the Maine Attorney General’s office, the corporation was the target of a hack earlier this year, news that came to light recently for Woodward. To find out what, if any, customer information was compromised, Woodward immediately secured its network and began investigating the situation.

According to Woodward’s findings, an unauthorized third party breached the company’s network and possibly stole data from the compromised systems. Some of the information was found to include private details about customers who had placed their trust in the business.

After learning that private customer information had fallen into the wrong hands, Woodward Communications started combing through the affected files to figure out what had been leaked and how many people had been affected. On March 20th, 2023, Woodward completed this procedure. Your name and Social Security number can be among the compromised data; however, the specifics depend on the individual.

Woodward Communications notified all customers whose personal information was affected in the current data security incident on April 5, 2023 via data breach letters.
