Suffolk University was recently contacted about a potential breach of personal information through its third-party ticketing vendor, Vendini, Inc. Vendini has reported that, on April 25, 2013, the company detected an unauthorized intrusion into its systems. If you used your credit card to make a purchase for a Suffolk University event through Vendini prior to April 25, 2013, your information, including your credit card number, may have been compromised.

It is important to note that Vendini has informed the University that it does not collect credit card security access codes (e.g., CVV, CVV2, PINs), Social Security numbers, usernames or passwords.

Vendini reports that it is actively cooperating with federal law enforcement, and the investigation is ongoing. Vendini also reports that its notification was delayed to support law enforcement’s investigation.

Suffolk University takes this incident seriously, and it will soon be contacting individuals who may have been affected and providing additional information, including information about services that the University is making available to affected individuals, such as identity repair and fraud resolution.

More information from Vendini on the data breach may be found at http://blog.vendini.com/ or by calling 1-800-836-0473. In addition, you may email questions to Suffolk University at incidenthelp@suffolk.edu.
