Lloyds Premier Account Data Breach
A storage device that contained the personal details of thousands of Lloyds Premier Account holders was stolen from one of the bank’s partners.
The stolen device contained customers Names, Addresses, Sort Codes and Account Numbers.
A storage device was taken from RSA Insurance, who provide emergency home insurance for Premier Account holders, on July 30.
In a press release RSA said:
“RESPONSE: Official response to the recently reported loss of a data storage device

“We have advised our regulators and are in the process of contacting potentially impacted customers to apologise.
“We are working with the police on a full investigation and although there is no evidence to suggest that this data has been misused in any way, we are offering identity protection with Cifas for two years to provide reassurance to these customers.

According to the BBC
“The theft only affects customers who opened their accounts between 2006 and 2012, and who subsequently made a claim on the insurance policy.”
If you, or anyone you know is a Lloyds Premier Account holder and opened the account between 2006 and 2012, I would recommend that you contact the bank.
