POUGHKEEPSIE - Though New York State and federal law enforcement officials continue to investigate the incident externally, forensic computer experts have completed their internal investigation into the February cyber-security incident that had the potential to involve banking information for approximately one third of Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation customers.
James P. Laurito, Central Hudson’s president, recommends that potentially impacted customers take advantage of the complimentary credit monitoring services that Central Hudson offered to them via mail. Eligible customers must sign up by June 30, 2013, in order to be covered.
"While we want our customers to know that we are doing everything possible to investigate this incident, we also want them to know that the complimentary credit monitoring program is designed to provide them with peace of mind," Laurito said.
Customers who received enrollment letters should contact Experian at 877-371-7902 to enroll in the free credit monitoring service; those with questions regarding this incident should visit Central Hudson at www.CentralHudson.com or call 1-800-527-2714.
