Cuesta approves fraud protection program
Board of trustees approves fraud protection service through Life Lock
– In response to the current investigation into an employee information breach, Cuesta College took action by recommending a fraud protection vendor to the Cuesta College Board of Trustees at the July 1 board meeting.
The board unanimously voted to enter into a one-year contract with Life Lock, a provider of proactive identity theft protection services. The contract went into effect Thursday, and notifications with enrollment instructions will be emailed and mailed to all individuals affected who will have sixty days to enroll.
“In this challenging and frustrating occurrence, the district is committed to providing peace of mind for current and former employees, and we are pleased to offer a full year of free identity theft protection services through Life Lock,” said Board of Trustees President Pat Mullen.
Employees are encouraged to contact the Cuesta College Human Resources Department at (805) 546-3129 if they have additional questions.
