Data stolen from 160 000 Allianz customers

DataAllianz Partners (Netherlands) was the victim of a physical data theft in August 2019. Documents relating to the claims of 160 000 Belgian customers were stolen from inside a safe where they were deposited. The files included policyholders' addresses, bank details and medical information.

Allianz has pointed out that the stolen data does not contain any access code to customers' bank accounts. According to the German insurer, criminals would not manage to make use of the documents without specific tools.

The offence was reported to the relevant authorities (Dutch police and Belgian data protection authorities) and legal proceedings were opened.
