SANTA FE — The Department of Information Technology’s (DoIT) Cybersecurity office is investigating unauthorized access at the state’s Regulation and Licensing Department (RLD).
The state continues to investigate the situation, but is confident that any unauthorized access has been isolated and mitigated.
The state is working closely with cybersecurity experts to make sure adequate protections are in place to prevent personal identifiable information of employees and RLD customers from being compromised.
RLD is notifying all individuals and organizations whose records may have been accessed and will provide data breach assistance and credit monitoring.
“Cybersecurity is of utmost importance to the State of New Mexico,” State Chief Information Security Officer Raja Sambandam said. “We are working diligently with RLD and all other state agencies to continuously improve their cybersecurity posture to protect the state and the people of New Mexico.”
RLD remains fully operational despite the attack and the ongoing investigation.
