ChoicePoint Reveals Four Security Breaches

On Friday, ChoicePoint revealed four different security breaches.

One invovled a Miami-Dade police officer who allegedly accessed, improperly, thousands of consumer records in what database giant ChoicePoint described as illegal use of its information. ChoicePoint also announced that two private investigators allegedly improperly used ChoicePoint records, so seek out customers, as well breaches at a company in Texas and breach involving an insurance company.

ChoicePoint is sending affected consumers notices and will offer them a free year of credit monitoring.
