May 02, 2011  | 

Computer hackers have stolen the names, addresses, Social Security numbers and credit card information of about 2,000 retired public safety officers who belong to the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC).

In a Sunday evening e-mail, PORAC informed its members that its data server was breached earlier this month. The hackers stole application files of retired associate members going back to 2008.

This is terrible news and an area I try to fight everyday (Information protection) There are items that banks and you can set-up to help you in cases like these...Many banks have automatic notification of any transaction to your email...Or have special security features on credit cards themselves via distance, amount, or other security features...check for these type options use them...and you would have to call the bank to allow use outside local area's or even states - It works I used an ATM an another location without informing my bank actually it was my bank but I was overseas at the time and returned OCONUS and it denied the transaction! I went to the bank next morning and they told me I forgot I did this, but you can see how this is a plus...oh yes shred everything you can also!!!! Always monitor!!! I hope they can shut this down ASAP (Federal side).
