Stolen Central Collection Bureau Server Exposes 700000 Personal Records

Indiana residents are alerted regarding a security breach at Central Collection Bureau (CCB, located at 7510 South Madison Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana). This breach potentially exposed the personal information, including names, contact information, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, dates of service, and medical procedure codes. Approximately 700,000 files may have been breached. The theft occurred on Friday, March 21, 2008, at CCB’s location in Indianapolis. The thieves broke into the company’s offices and stole 8 computers, as well as one of its servers (databases).

A small percentage of the individuals who were patients or customers of the businesses affected, those who ultimately were referred for debt collection, would have their personal information included in the CCB database. Some of the information might also be outdated. Other patients and customers of those companies are not affected by this breach. These individuals were referred to CCB for debt collection purposes by Indiana businesses, on or before March 20, 2008.

CCB promptly contacted the police and is working with the Indiana Attorney General’s office. The company also promptly installed additional locks, a security system, and a motion detection system to help minimize the risk of any further unauthorized access to its information.

While the company has no information suggesting that the breach occurred for purposes of identity theft, it nevertheless has contacted the three national credit bureaus to place a fraud alert.

Please go to the CCB website at, call CCB at 317-887-5165 or 1-800-878-5165 or email CCB at [email protected] for more information.
