The city of Wichita has partnered with Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. to offer free credit monitoring to businesses affected by the October hacking of the city’s electronic procurement site.
The city’s website was hacked over the weekend of Oct. 5 with a Turkish group claiming responsibility. The hacking exposed Social Security numbers, taxpayer identification numbers and banking numbers from almost 29,000 local vendors and employers.
