BetMGM customers had personal information accessed in a data breach

The personal information of an unspecified number of BetMGM users was accessed in a May data breach, the sports betting company announced in a release Wednesday.

BetMGM said it became aware of the issue on November 28 and promptly launched an investigation to determine the nature and scope of the issue.

Based on its findings, the type of information accessed varied by patron but included name, postal address, email address, phone number, date of birth, hashed social security number, user ID and BetMGM transaction info.

BetMGM didn’t find evidence that passwords and account funds were accessed, but recommended customers remain alert for suspicious activity regarding their personal info.

“We are taking this matter very seriously and are working quickly to investigate it. The security of our platform and our patrons’ data is a top priority for BetMGM. We regret any inconvenience this may cause,” BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said.

The company said its taking steps to further enhance security and is offering anyone affected by the breach free credit monitoring and identity restoration services for two years.
