On September 2, 2020, Shook Construction Co. (“SCC”) detected suspicious activity within its network environment. SCC immediately engaged third-party forensic specialists to assist SCC in its analysis of any unauthorized activity. Through this investigation, it was determined that several SCC business email accounts were compromised by an unauthorized third party.

SCC found no evidence that any personal information has been specifically accessed for misuse. However, it is possible that certain individuals’ names, mailing addresses, dates of birth, driver’s licenses, and/or social security numbers could have been exposed. This information was located in the email mailboxes of the compromised accounts. A review of the activity of the unauthorized actor did not reveal any specific access to this information.

SCC mailed notification letters to affected individuals on February 18, 2021, which included additional information about steps that affected individuals can take, including a toll-free number that individuals can call to learn more about the incident. The call center can be reached at 1-800-939-4170 and is available Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM ET.

“The privacy and protection of sensitive information is a top priority for us,” says Greg Birkemeyer, Shook’s Director of Risk Management. “We deeply regret any inconvenience or concern this incident may cause.”
