Data Privacy


(Jan. 6, 2024): Fincantieri Marine Group, LLC (“FMG”) is providing notice of a data security event that may involve personal information related to certain individuals. While we are unaware of any actual or attempted identity fraud in relation to the incident, we are providing those potentially affected individuals with information about the incident and steps individuals may take to help protect against the possible misuse of their information.

What Happened? On or about April 12, 2023, FMG became aware of unauthorized access to the company's computer network. We promptly took steps to secure our environment and began an investigation into the nature and scope of the incident. The investigation determined that, in connection with the incident, there was unauthorized access to certain systems in our environment between April 6, 2023, and April 12, 2023. We then undertook a comprehensive review of the affected data to confirm what information was potentially impacted. On November 6, 2023, we determined that personal information relating to certain individuals was contained in the files.

What Information Was Involved? The investigation determined that impacted individuals’ names, and the following types of data were present in the files at issue: date of birth, Social Security number, diagnosis information, health insurance information, full face picture, medical account number, and/or claim or complaint number.

What We Are Doing. We take this incident and the security of information in our care seriously. Upon learning of this incident, we immediately secured our environment, investigated to determine the nature and scope of the incident, and notified law enforcement. We have also implemented additional technical safeguards to help prevent a similar incident in the future. FMG is offering impacted individuals access to complimentary credit monitoring and identity protection services through Experian.

What You Can Do. We encourage impacted individuals to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing their account statements and monitoring their free credit reports for suspicious activity and to detect errors. Additional information may be found in the Steps You Can Take to Protect Personal Information section below.

Monitor Your Accounts
Under U.S. law, a consumer is entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus, Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. To order your free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call, toll-free, 1-877-322-8228. You may also directly contact the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below to request a free copy of your credit report.

Consumers have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on a credit file at no cost. An initial fraud alert is a one-year alert that is placed on a consumer’s credit file. Upon seeing a fraud alert display on a consumer’s credit file, a business is required to take steps to verify the consumer’s identity before extending new credit. If you are a victim of identity theft, you are entitled to an extended fraud alert, which is a fraud alert lasting seven years. Should you wish to place a fraud alert, please contact any one of the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below.

As an alternative to a fraud alert, consumers have the right to place a “credit freeze” on a credit report, which will prohibit a credit bureau from releasing information in the credit report without the consumer’s express authorization. The credit freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. However, you should be aware that using a credit freeze to take control over who gets access to the personal and financial information in your credit report may delay, interfere with, or prohibit the timely approval of any subsequent request or application you make regarding a new loan, credit, mortgage, or any other account involving the extension of credit. Pursuant to federal law, you cannot be charged to place or lift a credit freeze on your credit report. To request a credit freeze, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Full name (including middle initial, as well as Jr., Sr., II, III, etc.);
  2. Social Security number;
  3. Date of birth;
  4. Addresses for the prior two to five years;
  5. Proof of current address, such as a current utility bill or telephone bill;
  6. A legible photocopy of a government-issued identification card (state driver’s license or ID card, etc.); and
  7. A copy of either the police report, investigative report, or complaint to a law enforcement agency concerning identity theft if you are a victim of identity theft.

Should you wish to place a fraud alert or a credit freeze, please contact the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below:
