How will I know if my private information was included?
Buffalo State is proactively contacting each person whose information may have been on the stolen laptop. Starting April 28, students impacted by this situation will be receiving letters at their most recent address of record. In the letters, each student is given a PIN (personal identification number). Students may contact SunGard 24/7 at 1-(866)-520-2408 (toll free number) with their PIN to obtain free credit monitoring for a year.

In addition to the mail notifications, Buffalo State has set up "name check" stations and a hotline in E. H. Butler Library.
