On September 1, 2017, law enforcement officials notified Coca-Cola that a former employee of the company was found to be in possession of an external hard drive containing personal information of approximately 8,000 Coca-Cola employees. Coca-Cola is in the process of notifying those impacted by the incident and will offer one year of free identity monitoring services to affected employees. The NJCCIC recommends Coca-Cola employees monitor their financial accounts for suspicious activity and report any unauthorized charges immediately. We also recommend impacted individuals take advantage of the free monitoring services offered.
