The city of Wichita has partnered with Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. to offer free credit monitoring to businesses affected by the October hacking of the city’s electronic procurement site.

The city’s website was hacked over the weekend of Oct. 5 with a Turkish group claiming responsibility. The hacking exposed Social Security numbers, taxpayer identification numbers and banking numbers from almost 29,000 local vendors and employers.

Beginning on Nov. 21, Dun & Bradstreet offered all the affected businesses a CreditAlert product that will tip them when changes occur in their business credit file. The service will be free for six months.

Affected business owners can visit http://www.dandb.com/wichita or call customer service toll free 855-315-1464 to register for their free CreditAlert product until the end of this year. The city is continuing to operate its hotline number at 316-268-4100.
