Alert - Pearson Data Breach

The State of Alaska has recently been made aware that an unauthorized third party placed malware on Pearson's Credential Manager (PCM) System, the platform that supports registration for Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) candidates. Pearson believes data fields that may have been compromised are limited to names, postal addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, user IDs, companies, and in some cases dates of birth. For EPPP candidates, social security numbers and credit card numbers are not collected in the PCM system, so that information is not available / compromised.

Information can be found in the FAQs on Pearson’s website: http://www.pearsonvue.com/faqs/PCM_faqs.asp

A toll-free number for exam candidates—(855) 270-9182 or 1-512-201-2203 for international users—has been established and is the best source for the most up to date information, and for assistance with any concerns or questions a candidate may have. The State of Alaska does not have any additional information about this situation at this time.

The Board of Psychologist and Psychological Associate Examiners is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing. The Board consists of three psychologists, one psychological associate, and one public member. Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The Board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of psychology in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The Board meets three times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas are available from the licensing examiner.
