Shaw's customers are latest victims of company data breach


CONCORD - "It's happened three times so it's frustrating every single time," said Jessica Benninghove, a victim of three different data breaches.

Customers getting burned again and again when companies suffer from data breaches.
"It' not something I'm shocked about but it's something I'm not happy about. I'm sure it will keep happening until somebody can just get ahead of the game but technology changes so quickly, it's hard to do," said Jodi Porter.

The Department of Consumer Protection says shoppers can protect themselves. Be aware of the risks of shopping with debit versus credit.
"I would consider calling my credit card company, rather be safe than sorry," said James Boffetti, Chief of Consumer Protection.

The department told NH1 having an active online banking presence isn't a bad idea either.

"We do online banking for all of our bills, we check our bank statements three or four times a week and we just monitor," said Porter

No numbers have been released as to how many customers have been affected by the breach but call your bank and see if they find any strange activity on your account.
