CEDAR RAPIDS - Eastern Iowa Airport officials announced Tuesday there was a security breach involving credit and debit card information collected at the airport's parking facilities between Sept. 29 and Oct. 29.
Customers who used the airport public parking could have had their credit card information compromised, according to a news release. Officials isolated the affected server as soon as the breach was discovered and security measures were put in place to eliminate further data compromise.
The breach only affected the public parking lot and not any other concessions, according to the release. Airport officials ask any customers who used their credit or debit card during this time to closely monitor their accounts.
If customers notice any fraudulent activity, they should notify their bank or financial institution and the Airport Public Safety department at 319-731-5722.
The airport is working with Republic Parking, the Parking Operator at the Airport, and DataPark, the manufacturer of the revenue controls system, to investigate the situation per the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, according to the news release. Third party forensic experts have been hired to assist with the investigation.
Officials said the security compromise has been contained, and customers can use their credit and debit cards at airport public parking.
Officials are limited to the amount of information they can provide at this time because of the ongoing forensics and law enforcement investigations. However, the airport will continue to post relevant consumer updates on the airport website at www.eiairport.org.
