On or about December 21, 2022, Ethos Technologies, Inc. (“Ethos”) sent a Notice of Data Breach Letter (“Breach Letter”) to its customers, informing them that their personally identifiable information (“PII”) including Social Security numbers (“SNNs”) was exposed through “unauthorized actors” who “launched a sophisticated and successful cyberattack…to access certain persons’ SSNs” (“data breach”).
According to the Breach Letter, hackers had access to Ethos’s systems between August 4, 2022 and December 9, 2022. The PII stolen by the hackers included, but may not have been limited to Social Security numbers.
Although Ethos states it learned of the data breach on December 8, 2022, hackers had access to its servers, including a “third-party integrated service” that provided sensitive PII to the hackers, for over four months. In the Breach Letter regarding Ethos’s forensic review, it informed victims that this was a targeted attack where the hackers had other information such as names, dates of birth and addresses and used that information to acquire the victims’ SSNs from Ethos and its “third-party integrated service.” This means that you are at a heightened risk as the hackers specifically targeted you in order to acquire your SSN from Ethos.
Ethos is a life insurance company and insurance services company headquartered at 460 Bryant Street, Fl. 3, San Francisco, California. Ethos provides life insurance policies with benefits amounts between $1,000 and $2,000,000.

For this breach, Ethos has offered data breach victims 24 months of Experian Identity Works credit and identity monitoring, but the deadline for victims to enroll may be a short window.
According to Ethos, the following information was exposed:
This information is called your Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). It tells others about you and is considered part of your identity. Businesses are required to secure this information or risk facing statutory penalties, among other legal penalties. Stolen PII can be used by identity thieves to engage in fraudulent activity using your identity.
The best way to protect yourself after a data breach is to sign up for credit and identity protection services as soon as possible. California offers extra protections and legal rights to its residents through the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).
