BATON ROUGE, La. – The Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) revealed today that they have partnered with Norton LifeLock to provide a one-year complimentary subscription to credit monitoring and identity theft protection services for Louisiana citizens affected by the recent MOVEIt data breach incident. The free 12-month package consists of LifeLock Standard™ identity theft protection.
To enroll and receive the no-cost protection, residents must follow the instructions available at nextsteps.la.gov. Additionally, OMV will send out email notifications to individuals whose information was compromised in this incident and possess emails on file.
Furthermore, OMV has set up a toll-free call center operating around the clock, all week long, to address any concerns or queries individuals may have. Should you believe your information was compromised in this breach and have questions, please call (866) 861-8717.
This assistance comes as a direct response to last month’s disclosure of the MOVEIt data security breach involving the personal information of people who received a Louisiana driver’s license, ID card, or vehicle registrations.
OMV strongly urges all individuals impacted by this event to remain vigilant against fraud and identity theft by closely examining their financial statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activities. In case of suspicious activity, immediately contact the relevant credit bureau or financial institution reporting it.
