DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa officials say more than 90,000 residents in the state have been affected by a nationwide insurance breach that's impacted more than a million people.
Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller announced the data breach's effect on the state Tuesday.
The breach has affected customers for Nationwide Insurance and Allied Insurance. Ohio-based Nationwide Insurance posted on its website about the Oct. 3 intrusion, which explains personal data was compromised from both policy holders and non-policy holders. The company says it is not aware of any misuse of the information.
Miller says Iowa residents may have been affected by the breach if they were seeking a competitive insurance quote through a company or third party agent that ran information through Nationwide.
