Please take notice that Pearson VUE recently experienced a data security incident involving email phishing related to services provided to the North Carolina Department of Insurance. This may impact a limited number of individuals whose personal information was submitted to Pearson VUE related to insurance licensure for the State of North Carolina between October 2016 and September 2017. The affected data may include personal information such as social security number, financial account number, and driver’s license number. There was no intrusion into Pearson VUE’s overall networks.
Since discovering this issue, Pearson VUE has implemented additional processing safeguards and taken further steps to secure its systems. There is no evidence at this point that any personal information has been misused. Letters are being mailed to individuals believed to be affected; however, if you do not receive a letter, but submitted information related to insurance licensure during this time period, please call 1-855-288-3161 for additional information.
