On May 24th it was reported that First American Title Insurance Company (First American) was victim to a potential data breach that could have exposed Non-Public Information (NPI) of potentially millions of consumers. Click Here for the article by KrebsOnSecurity. This potential data breach could not potentially expose any NPI from consumers who have settled with Universal Title. Although First American has underwritten the vast majority of title insurance policies that Universal Title issues, due to the nature of our insurance agency relationship, Universal Title does not transmit any NPI to First American.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local Universal Title office.
