Customer account access and asset transactions are restored and now available. All customers will be required to reset their account password to access their account. We thank you for your patience throughout this experience.

While the investigation is ongoing, we have confirmed that the July 29 network incident was caused by unauthorized access to iTrust systems by a third-party using a compromised corporate account. They disrupted our DNS hosting services and accessed some corporate systems.

As soon as the incident occurred, we secured customer assets with our custody vendors. We also engaged a leading third-party cybersecurity firm to further secure our systems, investigate the incident, and enhance security protocols. The unauthorized access has been removed from our environment, and the system secured.

Our investigation has confirmed initial findings that some corporate email accounts and distribution systems were accessed, and that the customer service system was rerouted in addition to the DNS disruption. iTrust does not hold customer assets, and there is no evidence of access to customer accounts. 

We are working with our cybersecurity firm to determine if any personal data may have been accessed. If we determine that there was unauthorized access to personal or financial information, we will notify the impacted individuals as appropriate.

We understand the impact of this experience for our customers and our priority has been to protect your data and the security of your assets.

As our investigation continues, we will provide further updates when they are available.
