LACERA Not Affected by CalPERS Third-Party Breach: Your Data is Safe
In June, CalPERS announced that a vendor, PBI Research Services/Berwyn Group (PBI), was impacted by a data security breach as a result of a file transfer service that the two organizations use to share data. As a result, personally identifiable information for CalPERS members was exposed.
PBI also provides member verification services to LACERA in certain circumstances; however, we want to assure you that LACERA member data was not affected, and your information is safe. LACERA does not use the same procedures as CalPERS, and our digital security and information safety continues to operate as intended.
