NORFOLK, Va. - Employees of Eastern Virginia Medical School personal information may have been hacked from an email request not associated with the school.

School officials say on January 29 they discovered the personal data of employees including name, address, date of birth, social security, and bank information may have been compromised.

EVMS advises employees to immediately contact one of the three major credit reporting agencies to place a fraud alert, request a copy of credit report, and to submit an IRS form for identity theft.

EVMS also recommends all employees to monitor bank transactions carefully.

School officials say they will offer free credit monitoring for 12 months.

Safety measures have taken place such as removing all W-2 records from the ADP site as well as implementing a two factor log in authentication.
