Capita data breach: guidance for members

UNISON members are in some of the pension schemes and funds affected by recent hacking attacks on the outsourcing firm Capita. These attacks have led to major breach of security resulting in personal data being obtained by the hackers.

We understand currently that this impacts on branch members who have previously had or have Capita private pensions. Our current understanding is that no breach of the West Sussex LGPS details has been made, relating to when Capita provided the administration for the service.

UNISON is working hard at a national level to protect members’ interests. The following briefing has been written for members.
