TALX Corporation and Honeywell International Inc., as reported by TALX Corporation

TALX Corporation provides certain payroll related services to Honeywell International Inc. which allows Honeywell’s employees to access electronic copies of T4 and RL-1 tax forms through an online portal website. On February 8, 2017, TALX Corporation discovered that one or more persons reset the PINs and accessed the online portal accounts of a small number of current and former Honeywell employees. The resets were unauthorized, and the unauthorized person(s) may have accessed any of the information maintained in the online portal. TALX Corporation?s investigation determined that the unauthorized person(s) was able to successfully answer questions about the affected individuals in order to reset the individuals? PINs. There is no indication that either of the Organizations were the source of any of the information used to reset the PINs and access the accounts. It appears that unauthorized access occurred between July 2016 and March 2017.
