FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. Responds to Report of Data Breach
There are various reports that three websites associated with the FBI National Academy Associates Inc., (FBINAA) have been hacked and that personal information has been obtained to be sold on the web. We are working with Federal authorities to investigate this allegation. We believe we have identified the three affected Chapters that have been hacked and they are currently working on checking the breach with their data security authorities. We have checked with the national database server/data provider and they have assured us that the FBINAA national database is safe and secure.
In each of these instances a third-party software was being used by the affected Chapters, however it is still too early to determine if this impacted the breach. Cyber-crime is on the rise and phishing attacks occur every day. The FBINAA takes every action to secure the safety and security of our members and their personal information. If it is determined that there has been felonious activity, we will prosecute the culprits to the fullest extent of the law.
