What Happened.  On June 26, 2022, Wabtec became aware of unusual activity on its network and promptly began an internal investigation. It was subsequently determined that malware was introduced into certain systems as early as March 15, 2022. Wabtec, with the assistance of leading cybersecurity firms, assessed the scope of the incident to, among other things, determine if personal data may have been affected. Additionally, shortly after discovery of the event, Wabtec notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The forensic investigation did reveal that certain systems containing sensitive information were subject to unauthorized access, and that a certain amount of data was taken from the Wabtec environment on June 26, 2022. The information was later posted to the threat actor’s leak site. On November 23, 2022, Wabtec, with the assistance of data review specialists, determined that personal information was contained within the impacted files. On December 30, 2022, Wabtec began notifying affected individuals, per relevant regulations, with a formal letter, to let them know their data was involved. 

What Information Was Involved.  The affected information varies by individual but includes a combination of the following data elements: First and Last Name, Date of Birth, Non-US National ID Number, Non-US Social Insurance Number or Fiscal Code, Passport Number, IP Address, Employer Identification Number (EIN), USCIS or Alien Registration Number, NHS (National Health Service) Number (UK), Medical Record/Health Insurance Information, Photograph, Gender/Gender Identity, Salary, Social Security Number (US), Financial Account Information, Payment Card Information, Account Username and Password, Biometric Information, Race/Ethnicity, Criminal Conviction or Offense, Sexual Orientation/Life, Religious Beliefs, Union Affiliation.

What Wabtec Is Doing. Wabtec is committed to and takes very seriously its responsibility to safeguard all data entrusted to it. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to the security of personal information in its care, it has taken additional steps to reinforce the integrity and security of its systems and operations, including implementing additional procedural safeguards. Wabtec has been notifying all applicable regulatory and data protection authorities, as required.

What You Can Do | Potential Consequences.

You have the right to place a “security freeze” on your credit report, which will prohibit a consumer reporting agency from releasing information on your credit report without your expressed authorization. The security freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. However, you should be aware that using a security freeze to take control over who gets access to the personal and financial information in your credit report may delay, interfere with, or prohibit the timely approval of any subsequent request or application you make regarding a new loan, credit, mortgage, or any other account involving the extension of credit. Pursuant to federal law, you cannot be charged to place or lift a security freeze on your credit report. 

To request a security freeze, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Your full name (including middle initial, as well as Jr., Sr., II, III, etc.);
  2. Social Security number;
  3. Date of birth;
  4. If you have moved in the past five (5) years, provide the addresses where you have lived over the prior five years;
  5. Proof of current address, such as a current utility bill or telephone bill;
  6. A legible photocopy of a government-issued identification card (state driver’s license or ID card, military identification, etc.);
  7. If you are a victim of identity theft, include a copy of either the police report, investigative report, or complaint to a law enforcement agency concerning identity theft.

As an alternative to a security freeze, you have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on your file at no cost. An initial fraud alert is a 1-year alert that is placed on a consumer’s credit file. Upon seeing a fraud alert display on a consumer’s credit file, a business is required to take steps to verify the consumer’s identity before extending new credit. If you are a victim of identity theft, you are entitled to an extended fraud alert, which is a fraud alert lasting seven years.

The Federal Trade Commission can be reached at: 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20580,, 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338); TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The Federal Trade Commission also encourages those who discover that their information has been misused to file a complaint with them. You can obtain further information on how to file such a complaint by way of the contact information listed above. You have the right to file a police report if you ever experience identity theft or fraud.  Please note that in order to file a report with law enforcement for identity theft, you will likely need to provide some proof that you have been a victim. Instances of known or suspected identity theft should also be reported to law enforcement and your state Attorney General. This notice has not been delayed by law enforcement.

Que s'est-il passé.  Le 26 juin 2022, Wabtec a pris conscience d'une activité inhabituelle sur son réseau et a rapidement lancé une enquête interne. Il a ensuite été déterminé qu'un logiciel malveillant avait été introduit dans certains systèmes dès le 15 mars 2022. Wabtec, avec l'aide de sociétés de cybersécurité de premier plan, a évalué la portée de l'incident pour, entre autres, déterminer si des données personnelles avaient pu être affectées. En outre, peu après la découverte de l'événement, Wabtec a informé le Federal Bureau of Investigation, aux États-Unis.

L'enquête judiciaire a révélé que certains systèmes contenant des informations sensibles ont fait l'objet d'un accès non autorisé et qu'un certain nombre de données ont été extraites de l'environnement de Wabtec le 26 juin 2022. Ces informations ont ensuite été publiées sur le site de fuite de l'acteur de la menace. Le 23 novembre 2022, Wabtec, avec l'aide de spécialistes de l'analyse des données, a déterminé que des informations personnelles étaient contenues dans les fichiers impactés. Le 30 Décembre 2022, Wabtec a commencé à notifier les personnes concernées, conformément aux réglementations pertinentes, par une lettre officielle, pour leur faire savoir que leurs données étaient concernées.

Quelles sont les informations concernées.  Les informations concernées varient selon les individus mais comprennent une combinaison des éléments de données suivants : Nom et Prénom, Date de naissance, Numéro d'assurance sociale ou code fiscal non américain, Sexe/identité sexuelle, Salaire, Numéro de compte financier, Informations d'accès au compte financier, Numéro de carte de paiement..

Wabtec a notifié toutes les autorités réglementaires et de protection des données applicables, tel que requis.

Ce que vous pouvez faire | Conséquences potentielles.

Pour cette raison, Wabtec encourage les personnes à rester vigilantes face aux incidents d'usurpation d'identité et de fraude en examinant leurs relevés de comptes financiers et leurs rapports de crédit pour détecter toute anomalie.
