NJ’s share of multistate settlement with Nationwide Mutual Insurance regarding a data breach

Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino announced today that New Jersey, along with 31 other states and the District of Columbia, has settled with Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. concerning a data breach that compromised the personal information of more than a million consumers.

The 2012 data breach resulted in the loss of Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, credit-scoring information, and other personal data belonging to 1.27 million consumers.

The settlement calls on Nationwide to make a total payment of $5.5 million to the participating states.
