Notice of Security Incident

Pepsi Bottling Ventures is providing notice of a data security incident that involved some personal information provided by current and former employees and contractors of PBV.

On January 10, 2023, Pepsi Bottling Ventures learned that unauthorized activity was reported on certain internal IT systems. Based on our investigation, an unknown party accessed those systems on or around December 23, 2022, and downloaded certain information contained in the accessed IT systems. We took prompt action to contain the incident and further strengthen the security of our networks. As of January 19, 2023, PBV has detected no unauthorized activity.

Based on the investigation, the impacted information varies by individual and may have included: first and last names (including individual and/or parents’ legal surname prior to marriage); home address; email address; financial account information (including a limited number of passwords, PIN codes, or other access numbers); state and federal government issued identification numbers such as driver license numbers, ID cards, social security numbers, and passport information; digital signatures; and information related to benefits and employment, including certain limited medical history, health and health insurance claims, and health insurance information such as policy numbers. At this time, we are not aware of any identity theft or fraud involving individuals’ personal information. We have provided written notification to all those potentially impacted to the extent that a mailing address was available.

Out of an abundance of caution, Pepsi Bottling Ventures has secured the services of Kroll to provide identity monitoring at no cost for at least one year for those actually impacted. Identity monitoring services include Credit Monitoring, a Current Credit Report, Web Watcher, Public Persona, Quick Cash Scan, $1 Million Identity Fraud Loss Reimbursement, Fraud Consultation, and Identity Theft Restoration.
