Nationwide agreed to hire a technology officer responsible for monitoring application and software security as part of the settlement.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. agreed to a $5.5 million settlement over a 2012 data breach that led to the theft of more than 1 million customers’ personal information, attorneys general for 33 states announced Wednesday.

The settlement came after the states claimed Nationwide and a subsidiary failed to apply a critical security patch to its network that could have protected it from the cyberattack. Attorneys general from Connecticut, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, D.C., were among those involved with the settlement.
