Personal Banking Information Illegally Accessed

The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce’s direct banking brand is investigating a potential data breach.

It says some personal and account information for about 40-thousand Simplii Financial clients may have been electronically accessed and additional online security measures are being implemented.

The Bank of Montreal says it was also contacted by fraudsters yesterday claiming to be in possession of certain data for a “limited number of customers” and it took immediate steps to close off exposures related to customer data.

Both banks are recommending clients also take additional steps to safeguard their information.
