USS statement on Capita cyber incident

USS’s update in respect of Capita’s cyber incident is available here.

Bill Galvin, USS’s Group Chief Executive, said: “We are very sorry that some USS member data held by Capita may have been accessed by a third party. Data privacy and security is a top priority for us, and we know our members will be concerned by this news.

“Having been told yesterday (11 May) that Capita could not guarantee the security of certain files, we’ve moved urgently to inform our members. We have given them guidance on the risks this might have created and how they might respond.

“We are very confident members’ pensions remain secure. We have reviewed our own systems and controls to ensure they remain robust. We continue to engage with Capita and will provide more information on the status of the potentially compromised data immediately it becomes available.”
