Cash management company hit by cyberattack

The private data of GardaWorld Cash US clients has been compromised by unnamed attackers.

A notice submitted to regulators in Maine on April 17th stated that an unauthorized actor accessed some of GardaWorld Cash facility systems and administrative files in Florida.

GardaWorld Cash US is a cash management company providing Cash Vault Services, ATM management, secure cash transit, cash automation, and forecasting solutions.

An investigation showed that the company’s systems were accessed between November 10th, 2023, and November 16th, 2023. The company claims that it discovered the incident on November 16th, 2023. As claimed in the notice letter, it “promptly took steps” to secure its systems and launched an investigation.

The threat actors are said to have acquired the personal information of the company’s clients, including names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and dates of birth.

The breached data also included private information related to insurance, such as benefits and health-related data.

The Office of the Maine Attorney General states that 39,928 people were affected by the hack. GardaWorld Cash US has offered affected individuals free credit monitoring and fraud protection services for 24 months.
